I came up with another idea last night and sent a patch, but I am not sure if it
got to right place, I don't see it myself. It was an answer longer in the thread
to Lars.

This one makes it possible to run any command in *Help* buffer, not just those
defined in help-mode.el, and those not need any patching or wrapping of existing

I don't know if it is correct place to put define-key for the global map, and I
am not sure if C-h M-h is the right, but that's just a detail.
