Icebox -h

Programs like Icebox that show their usage when invoked with a -h command line option do not indicate that configuration overrides can be passed on the command line. For example, you have to call icebox like this, or it won't read the config file.

icebox --Ice.Config=config

I spent a while trying to figure out if icebox was actually reading my configuration file, or if I was just typing in bogus endpoint descriptions.

There should be some mention of this ability to pass in configuration items in the usage message that is shown.
