This allows users to disable guessing the commands or options that they
meant to use.

Questions:

- Is advice.* the right namespace?
- How should this interact with help.autocorrect?

If you are declining help.autocorrect altogether, do you need to

value (e.g. 'never') given to help.autocorrect sufficient?

Something along this line (not even compile tested though)?
