The memoir help file memman.pdf from 2004 (this is the edition that I  
have) is a pdf file, so I don't think it can be accessed via the help  
menu. Why not just stick it in the dock and open it that way when you  
need it? Or else leave it open and switch to it when you want to  
check something in it?

Maybe it could be obtained as source and then recompiled in some form  
that can be accessed by the help menu, but probably not, and anyhow,  
it would be lots of work.
