Apparently, actually using it, when a .listing file already exists (say, a second invocation with --no-htmlize) does some really screwy things. Says ".listing" has sprung into existence (even though it was already there), saves to index.html.N, but parses index.html (no .N), and expects it to be non-HTMLized. Ouch!

Perhaps that's why it's not documented, because it's known to be buggy?
