[drupal-devel] Idea - move help text out of code into database

I like this; But i foresee quite some difficulties with providing those texts
as data for the database. Not all modules have a modulename.[my/pg]sql file.
and making the file mandatory only for the help text is not a good option
Also: what we need, IMO is a help-tyext importer. One that makes nodes (or
other **searchable**) content on drupal.org from the help texts.
