frank, i agree with you (surprise:-))
rich, i don't see how putting the help-patches into doc/ relates to  
what you have described. (but probably i have just lost track of what  
you are saying)

i think the entire helppath-thing was a _very_ ugly klugde and it  
should not be mentioned any more...seriously, it tries to provide  
workarounds for things that should be solved straightforward; it  
created more confusion within me than i would have thought is proper  
for the topic of help-patches.
