[Pharo-project] HelpBrowser takes too much time to open

This is because the help book "Pharo" includes an API
reference for the WHOLE system (starting from ProtoObject
all subclasses down) and converts all class comments 
in the system into help text. Accessing sources is slow...

Just run

  MessageTally spyOn: [SystemReference asHelpTopic]  

If nobody uses this full API reference then we can eliminate
the class "PharoAPIHelp" and it should be much faster
(from 3705 down to 1006 in my image).

Other books like the ones on announcements and on regular
expression also contain an API reference ... but only
with classes for these packages.
