In general - I agree with you. Neither should you need a user-config.py
reading wikipedia pages.
However. The current framework is so old, it has become quite hard to fix
these kinds of issues. I'm not 100% sure what the rewrite does for these
things - but fixing it there is much easier than fixing it in the current
framework, where all kinds of issues are scattered around.
Last note - You're the first one I met who actually uses pydoc to inspect
python objects. All other developers I know use the python prompt and
object.__doc__ - then your problems are not an issue, which is probably why
no-one has looked into this before.
