I don't see cp, ls, gcc or any other standard and especially GNU command 
line tools show a copyright notice in their usage message or have a 
command line option to show one. So I don't think that's a GPL/LGPL 

So I'm still in favor of simplification by elimination.

Hmm, also currently 'start /LOW notepad' does not do the right thing, 
but that can be fixed independently...
