Summary0009029: Include CPack RPM documentation inside CPackRPC.cmake itself
DescriptionI would find it useful to have CPack generator documentation
embbeded in the cmake module they are working with
(when there is some).

This way:
cmake --help-module CPack<XXX> will give valuable information.

The forthcoming patch does this for CPack RPM generator.

I would add that an --help <GENERATOR> may be added to the cpack command
which may use the same file. Says that you want to have CPack DEB generator

cmake --help-module CPackDEB
cpack --help-generator DEB

will give you the same information.
cmake looks for a file "CPackDEB.cmake" in its search path
whereas cpack may do the same with an automatically prefix "CPack"
put in front of the generator name.
