Bug Description

If one runs byobu with the -h or --help command line argument, it prints the not so informative tmux help.

lt@lapat:~$ byobu --help
usage: tmux [-28lquvV] [-c shell-command] [-f file] [-L socket-name]
            [-S socket-path] [command [flags]]
lt@lapat:~$ byobu -h
tmux: unknown option -- h
usage: tmux [-28lquvV] [-c shell-command] [-f file] [-L socket-name]
            [-S socket-path] [command [flags]]

Thanks for the bug.

I'll change it such that -h|--help puts you straight into the manpage, where all of Byobu is documented.
