this has possibilities, I like. 

So much better if somehow the response were contextualized to what was 
the most recent activity opened, that is, if the user opens Help when he 
just opened TamTamEdit, Help would open right on that chapter (obviously 
with a button all over to go back to Help Home), if no activities are 
open, we can safely assume the user is testing things very early, and 
she is sent to the basic help
