bug#8368: 24.0.50; "temp" means "help" - rename or at least document

    If `help-mode' is the correct mode for these buffers, then I think
    `with-output-to-temp-buffer' should be documented to put the buffer in
    help mode, and it should be done explicitly in the code -- not by having
    help.el alter `temp-buffer-setup-hook' when help.el is loaded.

I think the reason I did it in the hook was to create a way to turn it
off.  Your change would eliminate that possibility.

It is surely possible to change how this area works, but please
don't just delete these hook settings.
