Here's an initial re-refactoring back to the plugin interface:
Don't use this one yet, because I have some more changes to
make based on the following question:
1) How do I remove the old helpbrowser entry from the
"Help" menu from inside my plugin?
That way the new helpbrowser will show up for new users, along
with an accelerator <ctrl-g>, without disturbing old grumps and
their <ctrl-b> browser.
