I have a patch that implements this feature, with the effect that
sequential docstrings will have a single blank line separating them.
Here is the documentation change that describes its behavior:

(from doc/v2/class.html, Effects of the "docstring" argument to
Value will be bound to the __doc__ attribute of the resulting method
overload. If an earlier overload supplied a docstring, two newline
characters and the new docstring are appended to it.

I have attached the patch for comment.  If there are no objections I can
commit it tomorrow afternoon.
