See 'hg help update' which already has a long help. I think the
indentation (though maybe not intended) is quite nice here and
should not be removed.

Please look at 'def update' in commands.py: The following lines
should start in the column of the first quote.
And watch out for trailing spaces.

Otherwise having more informative hg help would be great.
