Porting the existing browser to gtkhtml2 should be trivial. The
question is, do we want to include a browser at all? IMO all that GIMP
needs is a small plug-in that communicates between the GIMP and a
browser of user choice.

We'd like to get rid of the hardcoded html help pages in the gimp
core.  Instead we'd like to use more generic identifiers and have a
plug-in do the mapping to HTML files. This could be done by parsing an
XML index generated by the gimp-help build system.
