I think that we should start with About and License pages. The manual 
page is problematic as we haven't got it yet, but we should add a 
possibility to create it by users in skins. We should just create a tab 
with mechanism for its content change with skins. I have no time to 
write manual, I was thinking only about manual to most important 
features/plaugins accessible in my system and in my language, so I need 
a place in UI ;)

ps. need icon image for help link, any suggestions?
