[ROOT] --help command line option

May I suggest that ROOT intercepts a "--help" command line option as
well as the current "-help" one (which I only discovered via a typo)?

I spent some time trying to find how to disable the splash screen,
eventually finding it in the mailing list archive, but if "root --help"
had worked, I'd have got it first time!
