agreed ... although it might be useful for the *service* if an alternate 
ip were needed. There has been previous suggestion that docs.python.org 
would be a good way of isolating the documentation for use with googles 
site search facility although this hasn't actually been implemented and 
you can achieve the same through using googles allinurl function eg

heres a search for pickle in the 2.4 docs

anyway... completely off topic.
