In a thread on kde-usability it was agreed it was a good idea moving Find
Files to Actions. Yes, there already is a "Find Files ->" extension but it's
not enabled by default. Enable the extension and remove the Top level Kfind?
The reason(IMHO) to move Find Files is the user percepts it as an action.
When it comes to "help", I don't know, it's a verb otoh..
