This would be very useful.

BTW, another useful feature of `describe-char' is the ability
to display information on a character displayed in the *Help*
buffer itself.

The recent changes in descr-text.el allow to do this, but buttons
in the *Help* buffer become broken, because only text properties
are copied, but not overlays.  To avoid problems of self-referencing
to the same buffer, I propose to display information on characters of
the *Help* buffer in a separate buffer whose name is generated by
`(generate-new-buffer-name "*Help*")':
