One obstacle to consider:
If your app has been using context-sensitive help, all the context-sensitive
hooks in the source code will need to be changed. This is a good deal of
work for the coders, particularly if you have "what's this" help in there.
If you make the switch, you might have to have a "hybrid" system so that the
coders don't have to make these changes.
