[PYTHON DOC-SIG] Hacking relentlessly :-)

Ive added cross-references in the text.  I dont know what syntax to 
use.  My current hacks allow docstrings such as:
"See also @a.b.c@", and "a.b.c" will be translated into a hyperlink 
if such an object has been collected in this run, else into Bold.

What syntax should I use for this?  I thought of a regex that 
dectected _any_ "a.b.c", but in some cases, the link will be a single 
word - ie, no "." sep'd.

Also, I noticed that manpage.py did _not_ process markups or internal 
hyperlinks for list definitions, etc - only paragraphs.  Is there a 
reason for this?  Having markups and links in definition lists seems 
pretty logical to me...
