No great objection, but I'd rather not use a help key up for that.  Will you
also want to bind a `C-h' key for (emacs) `Language Help'?  And for (emacs)
`Apropos'?  And for (emacs) `Coding Systems'?

A priori, I would prefer to keep most `C-h' keys for commands that describe
things.  Sooner or later we will have a "b" or "C-b" thingie worth describing
using `C-h C-b'.

Example: In my file `help-fns+.el' I added `C-h M-k' for my `describe-keymap'

Instead of binding `C-h C-b' to take you to (emacs) `Bugs', I'd sooner see us
add a link to (emacs) `Bugs' in the doc string of `report-emacs-bug'.

But I've said that before - we should add info links to *Help* output.
There are patches to do that here:
