+Docstrings can be customized by making direct assignments to the ``__doc__`` +fields:
- Book = namedtuple('Book', ['id', 'title', 'authors'])
- Book.__doc__ = 'Hardcover book in active collection'
- Book.id = '13-digit ISBN'
- Book.title = 'Title of first printing'
- Book.author = 'List of authors sorted by last name'
Should these be: Book.id.__doc__ = ... etc.?
- Point = namedtuple('Point', ['x', 'y'])
- Point.__doc__ = 'ordered pair'
- Point.x.__doc__ = 'abscissa'
- Point.y.__doc__ = 'ordinate'
These lines from /Doc/whatsnew/3.5.rst would make me think so.
