#1748 new enhancement

Per-screen and per-field help text, configurable per trac environment

It would be very useful for us to be able to specify help on a per-field basis (on tickets, milestone admin, etc.) and a per-screen basis reports, new tickets, roadmap, milestone add/edit/close, etc.

This would allow us to document our production processes at the point where they are being used (i.e. trac), not just in a manual which no one bothers to read / reads and forgets.

I think this could be done without any major changes to trac, e.g. by using Wiki pages for the per-page help, and trac.ini parameters for the per-field values in tickets, etc.

It might also be good to be able to hide/show the help so that power-users could 'de-clutter' the screen.
