Surely this is a function call in a common gnome library? gnome_show_help,
or whatever?

Then, that library should require yelp. Of course, I suppose the app
it launches with the help URL is configurable via gconf, so the requires
needs dynamically generated based on the union of all users' current
gconf keys and AAAAARGH.
