Comments on Improving the built-in help system for Bitlbee Mastodon

Added a fix for the read documentation: https://alexschroeder.ch/cgit/bitlbee-mastodon/tree/doc/HELP.md#read

It's confusing that the organization of "help mastodon" is on a per-topic basis and not per-command, whilst some topics are in fact named after a command.

At some point I learned that "blist all" can list those I follow. But now when I want to refer back to the docs, I try "help mblist" and nothing. So then I try "help mlist" and get docs on lists within the Mastodon system.

I think there should be a command reference help. E.g. I should be able to type something like "help mcommand blist" and get a blist. And topics should have a different clear navigation; e.g. "help mtopic public" to get general guidance on a topic.

Sorry, I just realized blist was a bad example because that's part of bitblee not specifically Mastodon.
