I know about it. But the main problem is that the Lhelp is another 
application. Need to transfer preference data (search pathes and 
registered database files info) to lHelp. Without this I can`t do 
nothing better. Now the lHelp recieves strict commands to open files.

I want to get a opinion from maintainers how is better to do that?
