Jerry Daniels has written some code he uses in Galaxy to access the  
docs directly from the stacks you'll find in Documentation/ 
packaged_xml/dictionary folder.
So did I when I wrote the 2.7.x search engine (last icon on the right  
in docs tool bar).
As far as I know, there is not any real authoring tool available:
Rev makes changes to the architecture and the help stack every  
release or almost...
Anyway, the code in the Rev search engine is not protected and you  
can access it as you wish.
