F1 was help in ISPF (IBM mainframe) for a long time
before MSFT.

If you remember IBM and MSFT got together and created a
standard called SAA.  I'd guess that's how F1 moved from IBM to
Windows.

Well despite all that, I bound F1 to compile.
Seemed like a good idea at the time.
I don't need a special help key for emacs.
