A help system is certainly appreciated.  I think that if people ask
for documentation about a particular package, texdoc should be used,
but if they don't know which package supports what they need, it's
quite helpful to have an interface to Robin's FAQ.

I'm sure that making Qt's HTML module available to the scripting
engines would be a great step forward.
