[plt-scheme] making applications easier to use

I've been thinging about how I could add lots of help information to a
program I'm writing.  Bubble help/tooltips are nice, but I want something
they can click so they can get a window full of real help on whatever
feature, not just a one line summary.  I've seen some programs put little
question marks next to every button in the application, so i've considered
that.  I've also thought of trying to catch the right-mouse-button clicks on
each button-object and use those to pop up help windows.  But both of those
seem like they'd be hard to implement & maintain.  I don't have a real good
idea yet.  Does anyone have suggestions?
