with-accept-help in command args

Can you influence the help string for command line arguments like regular
accept invokations (if so how)?
ie: You can do this (assume in CLIM)
(with-accept-help ((:top-level-help "My Help Message"))
what about ...
(define-my-application-command (com-my-string-input :name t) ((strg 'string))
How can I change the help string to be what I want when I hit the help key
for the strg arg?
I don't think there is a good way to use WITH-ACCEPT-HELP in the way you
want. You do have two alternatives, though. The first is to define
your own presentation type, MY-STRING, that describes itself
differently. The second (and possibly better) way is to use the
:DESCRIPTION meta-option in the presentation type:
(define-my-application-command (com-my-string-input :name t)
((strg '((string) :description "strinka-dinka-doo")))
