If I remember the gnome-doc-list thread on this, this idea was looked
at because running Nautilus on a slower machine everytime a help doc
was needed was painful.

There are alot of people who believe Nautilus is *the* way to go for
the docs, so I don't know if they can convince them to switch
gears. Though I think having just one small simple help browser is a
cool idea. Espcially if one tries to get docs for a gnome app when
they aren't in the GNOME environment.
