At the moment none of the documentation is in a suitable format, and
there are probably some more issues (e.g. it's use of wx which is not
in main but in universe).  HTML files are probably easy to convert to
the format it uses, but things like the main GNOME documentation
format might be more difficult.

BTW: I just found this wxPython tool:

  $ python /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-unicode/wx/tools/helpviewer.py

  helpviewer.py   --  Displays HTML Help in a wxHtmlHelpController window.

      helpviewer [--cache=path] helpfile [helpfile(s)...]

      Where helpfile is the path to either a .hhp file or a .zip file
      which contians a .hhp file.  The .hhp files are the same as those
      used by Microsoft's HTML Help Workshop for creating CHM files.

I guess the wxHtmlHelpController can be reused (embeded) in other wx apps...
