The very problem is that a new user doesn't know about the `C-u'
prefix argument to the `F1' key.  You have to look up the
documentation of `help-with-tutorial' to find out that a prefix
argument exists, and this is non-intuitive IMHO.  And once you've
typed `C-h ?' or `F1 ?' to find out about the help details, it is too
late to pass a prefix argument too (additionally, it isn't mentioned
in the help screen).
