help: respect aliases
If we have an alias "foo" defined, then the help text for "foo" (via "git help foo" or "git foo --help") now shows the definition of the alias. Before showing an alias definition, we make sure that there is no git command which would override the alias (so that even though you may have a "log" alias, even though it will not work, we don't want to it supersede "git help log").
