help -a: improve and make --verbose default
When you type "git help" (or just "git") you are greeted with a list with commonly used commands and their short description and are suggested to use "git help -a" or "git help -g" for more details. "git help -av" would be more friendly and inline with what is shown with "git help" since it shows list of commands with description as well, and commands are properly grouped. "help -av" does not show everything "help -a" shows though. Add external command section in "help -av" for this. While at there, add a section for aliases as well (until now aliases have no UI, just "git config").
