It's been 11 years here without any progress.

It seems extremely simple to add the reference cards to the help menu,
should we want to do it.  So I assume there just isn't much enthusiasm
for the idea, and I tend to agree: I don't see that it's very useful or
necessary to make the help menu longer for this.

I'd be inclined to close this as wontfix.  Any other opinions?
