Then fix the textmode IDE for OS/2 :-)

Point is the CHM support is quite far atm, and I don't think it makes sense
to add another format. I'm also seriously thinking to cull some of the
legacy formats out of the IDE when the transition is ready. 

Maybe with a converter if they must really be supported. (like a TPH2CHM
would be great, since that'd allow BP owners to integrate TV help)
