Well, it doesn't have to have be an `interactive program' -- note that
gdb's help system is basically command-line oriented, you don't have
help menus, etc. (like e.g. vms help does).  You just do `help word1
word2 ...'; for non-leaf nodes, it shows a list of further
possibilities, for leaf nodes it shows some help text.

That sort of system would fit pretty well into tla.
