Is sethelpsymbol deprecated? I don't see any info about it on the devlist,
userlist, or puredata.info.

but as people change rules about help files without prior notice,
i'm just bored of handling that kind of issue
the initial idea of sethelpsymbol was that you could put as help file :
comment-peigner.la.giraffe.pd as help file and
nobody would have bothered you for that...
but freedom is gone .... with obscure rules...
