I am not sure how useful others find that, but we like the idea of using
a browser which is already open rather than starting a new one.  This
can be accomplished by replacing help.start() by

help.start <-
function(gui = "irrelevant", browser="netscape") {
  file <- "$RHOME/html/index.html"
  system(paste(browser, " -remote \"openURL(", file, ")\" 2>/dev/null || ",
	       browser, " ", file, " &", sep = ""))

Of course, if we decide that the on-line help system will eventually be
based on HTML, I can extend the above to other browsers as well ...
