Once the major documentation overhaul is done I was going to table the idea
of dropping our current awkward context help system  (actually there are at
least three systems in place at the moment) in place of shippng the sphinx
docs with qgis and using a browser control to dive into the correct place
in the docs when help is requested. This will be another step further in
unifying docs so there is only one place they need to be managed /
translated etc.

However I doubt this will happen in 2.0....but when it does you will be in
a good position already since you can just point to your sphinx docs....
