Issue #6 resolved

help out put goes to stderr, that's just weird

All output to stdout of albion.py is evaled, which doesn't make sense for strings that the user reads, so as an easy workaround, that sort of output is all sent to stderr. To fix this, you could replace this in albion.py:

{{{

!python

print >>sys.stderr "usage..." }}}

with this:

{{{

!python

print 'echo "usage..."' }}}

but it's a lot harder to get the formatting how you like with echo. It turns out that printf is POSIX (http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/printf.html), so maybe that would make it easier to have nicely formatted output.
