[PD] multi-language help patches

I think multi-language
patch “comments” is more difficult than multi-language “Help

M-L-Help files can be done
translating each help file and saving it with a name like
“metro-help-ES.pd” or “metro-help-FR.pd” then telling pd to
add the -ES or -XX to the english helpfile name.

This is a lot of work, but
can/should be done by the community, I remember that something like
this has been done in Pd-extended menus with an online
infrastructure, everyone contributed with what was left to be done.

Of course this increases a
lot the size of the package, there should be something like
downloading only the extra language that you use and not all. Some
folder somewhere.

Just a sketch.

I'll implement any *clear* spec for multi-language help patches someone comes up 
with with the following constraints:1. it separates design from content.2. in only requires documentation writers to care about content.3. it does not pigeonhole help patches into having a single, ugly design4. documentation writers will be guaranteed that whatever they write, it won't 
overlap patch content.5. it is maintainable and scalable

Sounds like .html.
