Dialog.addHelp(html) window - can be made "not modal"?

Dear Wayne,

I like very much the function Dialog.addHelp(html) in my macros - "help"
button is always useful for inexperienced user. However, help window
will wait until user clicks [OK] button and only then will allow to
proceed. It would be nice that this window behave in the same way as
"waitForUser" window, which is "not modal" (as written in built-in
functions explanation). That allows user to do something else while the
window is open. In this way help instructions for macro will be always
available for a user, so he/she will not need to dig into macro itself
or restart it to remind of options mentioned in "help".
