I see no way to override View-mode's key binding in Help-mode.

  (define-key help-mode-map "g" 'revert-buffer)

doesn't help, `g' still calls `View-goto-line'.

Better than making pcl-cvs and vc-dired compatible with dired,
would be make them compatible with each other.  Sometimes
I type a pcl-cvs key in vc-dired and get a disastrous result,
e.g. instead of hiding committed files (`cvs-mode-ignore')
typing `I' in vc-dired registers the file under point.
