This is very inconsistent, because the first linebreak uses the backslash and
the second one directly following it does not use it. I think the first one
should be removed.

This can easily be solved by not calling die() from usage() but the other way
around. usage() only prints the info and does not exit anything. die() calls
usage and then exits accordingly. I mostly see it done this way.
