[Bf-committers] Proposal for "View Docs" on Right Click

Id be concerned that a lot of api things that are wiki-able are used all
over the place, not just in a few operators. Are we talking about clicking
on buttons only, or also settings and values used in operators? If you click
for help on a slider that does something in a modifier, but the same kind of
slider is used in materials, do you open multiple tabs, one for every place
used, or do you open only the help for a slider? How do we know that the
user is working on a slider that is part of a material? what if you change
the material type? How can you keep track of the intention  of the user
seeking help?

Obvious help docs would be:
button operator - docs for operator
add bone - bones page

not obvious:
noise settings and values go where?

Could users add general info to a page about a data type used in more than
one place?
Should they put links to other places these settings are used?
A lot of these settings could use help docs :)
