Yea, I mentioned Qt Help because I was still a little unsure whether
this is something that we want (I mean, if we want to spend time on
application-integrated help stuff like What's This et.c.). So I was
curious how many people actually use it extensively.

Also of course interested in if there are any gotchas when authoring a
HTML manual that is to be used in both contexts (Web and
in-application throught Qt Help), should we decide to do that. The Qt
docs doesn't say much about how to author the HTML to be compressed
into a .qch, so I guess there are no gotchas :)
