Thanks for the suggestion.
I've changed yes.c to do as you suggest:

  yes --help
  Usage: yes [STRING]...
    or:  yes OPTION
  Repeatedly output a line with all specified STRING(s), or `y'.

    --help      display this help and exit
    --version   output version information and exit

  Report bugs to <address@hidden>.
