[issue2799] hg help for extension shows wrong help text

New submission from David Jade <david at mutable.net>:

I have an existing extension called "subrepo". Recently I upgraded from 1.5.4 
to 1.8.x and now when I execute 'hg help subrepo' I get the built-in help 
topic for 'subrepos' instead of my extension's help text.  If I execute 'hg 
subrepo', my extension executes correctly but since it requires arguments, it 
tries to display its help and instead shows the built-in 'subrepos' text in 
this case as well.

The extension itself work fine, I just can't get the help text.

The extension is located here: https://bitbucket.org/davidjade/hgsubrepo
