Actually, after sleeping on it, it made me realize that this point above 
renders the discussion moot from a KDE Frameworks standpoint. On my side I was 
trying to determine if we had a way out from invokeHelp(). But as soon as you 
need this type of extra behavior, you need to have something like 
invokeHelp(), so our solution doesn't lie with the "wiki or docbook" 

Anyway, thanks everyone involved for the input provided. It was also a good 
opportunity to evaluate how our current doc team perceive userbase use for 
manuals (although that was just a fringe interest from KDE Frameworks 
perspective), I think the outcome there is pretty clear. :-)
