While the rest of your post is interesting, it is irrelevant. If we
can't agree on the goals, we certainly won't be able to agree on the
syntax. (BTW: you're not disagreeing with me, but rather my assumptions.
I'm not sure *I* agree with those: I just tried to formulate a consensus
which I can live with ;-) )

Since no discussion will settle the purpose issue, which I will formulate
as "Are doc-strings the whole documentation, or a quick reminder while
the documentation is elsewhere?", unless some of the people here will
manage to brainwash the rest <wink>, the whole issue is moot. I think the
only way to resolve the argument is by decision from above. 

The authority to consult remains TBD.
