[Rd] enhancement request for labeling help windows in Windows

I would like to make a formal request for an enhancement.

The default help for RGui in 2.4.0dev seems to be the .chm format
outside of the RGui frame.  Previously the default help was individual
windows inside the RGui frame.  Every package in R has its own help
file and all of them are labeled identically as "Help" by Windows.
The labels appear in the title of the window, in the task bar, and in
the alt-tab menu.

The request is to give each a unique name, for example
    R Help --- base
    R Help --- grid
    R Help --- lattice
