By the way, help commands are of course avialable, same way as the example I
show you yesterday where I installed help-mode-map on C-h M-h. But this one is
better because no patching to existing commands in help-mode.el is needed, no
wrappers are needed, and if future commands are added it will work ootb. And you
cann send any other command if you prefer so too.
