There is 

which is referenced from the g.parser man page.

But I agree that a table like your's might be more helpful and that it 
should be accessible amongst the man pages.

Great, thanks !

May I just suggest the following small modification to make the html 
more readable:

--- options_orig.py	2015-07-01 11:57:54.146435072 +0200
+++ options.py	2015-07-01 11:57:30.234718383 +0200
@@ -105,7 +105,7 @@

      def html(self, endline='\n', indent='  '):
          """Return a HTML table with the options"""
-        html = ["<table>"]
+        html = ["<table border=1>"]
          # write headers
          html.append(indent + "<tr>")
          html.append(indent * 2 + "<td>{0}</td>".format('option'))

Wouldn't it be better in tools/ directly in the source code ?
