I NEVER implied that the Lazarus project must use the Kylix Help
viewer as "the lazarus help viewer". I also NEVER implied that the
Kylix Help must be copied or used verbatim as "the lazarus help".  The
suggestion was always meant as a "stop gap" option, while the Lazarus
help was non-existent.

Not to mention that you could have received a copy of the Kylix Open
Edition product - which was freely available as magazine cover CD's
etc back in 2000-2004. Kylix Open Edition - for use for developing GPL
software - is still available for download from various locations on
the internet - it's just not supported by Embarcadero any more.

Again, I NEVER said the Kylix Help Viewer must become the official
Lazarus help viewer. You came up with that idea all by yourself.
