yes you can do this :)
a link to our page is sufficient, we are a team.

yes, it pulls in half gnome ... thats the reason I let the user decide to have 
help with yelp or read the manual etc online on your homepage.

yes, html would be great so every browser can be used and I could use a 
special tag for "web_browser" as dependency and this is satisfied by 
konqueror, firefox, opera, ...

In the next build I can use the option --without-help. But I would prefer a 
solution with the html-pages
