Auto-selecting remote function type on net and help function

Since net will (eventually) auto-detect whether to use RAP, RPC, or ADS,
how should the help read?  For example,
net rap user [misc. options] [targets]
isn't quite right to me.  I'd like to propose:
net [rap] user [misc. options] [targets]

But I'd like to be able to express that [rap] might not occur if left to
auto-selection.  Any ideas on how to express that?
