this has to be done unfortunately and I see a problem to have a good
integrated help in place for 4.0.

The help system is one area where we should try to find a better
solution. I can think of an optional package and some kind of internal
mapping between help id's and the place where to find the help files.

then we can have an online version of the help which give us further
advantages and we can have an downloadable and optional help (package,
extension) for offline usage on demand.

something for the future I guess, one of many things that we can improve
or where somebody can start working on....
