I'll start with "sorry!!!", because my previous mail could probably
also be interpreted as little more than "Yuck!", but it definitely
wasn't intended so!

I appreciate the work you've put into this, and I
think the outcome probably matches the various goals you've set (like
XML compatability while being more readable), but I'm not sure I agree 
with those goals, or at least with the way the examples seem to go. As
I explained in a previous message, to me docstrings should be
easy-write, easy-read, and in no way a replacement for True
