I see no difference between Elijah's proposal (to make Yelp 2.6 and
2.10 parallel-installable) and this. FWIW, Elijah's proposal even
seems easier, and that's what I'd rather support.
We'd still require a11y-interested folks to run other-than-default
help viewer, so this is the issue that is currently the stumbling
block, I'd say. Or not?
