    Plugins should be required to provide .CHM help files with the same name as
    the .DLL. The HELP command should automatically use them.

    I think that is overkill for some plugins. In my EVENT plugin for
    example, using the plugin /I switch gives you help text.

    I see at least two problems with that:

    1) A snowball's got a better chance than convincing all the plugin authors
    that they have to invest in Windows Help tools and spend several times as
    much time writing the help as they did writing the plugin, and

    2) Even if they did, it's about 10 times easier for the plugin to handle
    their help as for TCC to do it.

    p.s.: 3) Aren't you the guy who's always ranting about how the only
    important thing is backwards compatibility? :-)
