	See, I think this is buggy. I have been using Emacs for nearly
 a decade now, and nobody takes my C-H default away from me (in other
 words, people have had exposure to applications like emacs on other
 Unix platforms (and other distributions of Linux), and they should
 not have to change their expectations of finding help on C-H just
 because they run Debian)

	Change thingslike this around, and see another jihad erupt ;-)
