Thanks for the info. Yeah, our current (broken) process for building
the webhelp dir is manual anyway, so adding these extra interactive
steps won't be a problem.

The long-term solution is of course to get the webhelp directory out of
the src tree entirely, into the (unversioned) build output where it
belongs, and get the help generator run as part of our automated build
scripts, not manually by individual developers whenever the help source
is modified.
