Yeah, after talking about it with some people in IRC it seems that
there wasn't any strong consensus. And John Palmieri had pointed out
that he can easily rebase the patch, so my current plan for this path
to get it into 3.4.2.final once we get closer. That way trac should be
more or less empty of mergable patches and everybody should be happy.

Yeah, that patch absolutely rocks and it is hard to understand why it
is so great unless you play with it. One suggested improvement was to
add some mechanism you could "tear off" or "pop out" a help page just
like Google chat for example.
