Walter?  Since this is your baby, I'd like to hear your opinion before
taking action.  Keeping both branches open for much longer is a
distraction, so we should certainly take action quickly.  But if you
feel this is a really important fix, go ahead and do something like

html_help = """
COPY-PASTE your text here.

for now as a stop-gap measure, and we can keep the actual html file in
the doc/ directory as per my patch.  With that, the help will work
both within the wx igrid tool and from an external browser, and you
can later work on a cleaner solution for the long term.

Otherwise, we just go as proposed by Ville with my patch and leave
this for post-0.8.1
