[Doc-SIG] What docs should be in the source file?

I side with Ping on this one. Just because there's some extra
examples and how-to-use-me documentation in a source file doesn't mean that
you're obliged to update it every time you work on the source. Ping's
argument is that it is more likely that lazy programmers will update that
type of information if it's stored in the same file. If this argument wins
out there wouldn't be much extra to put in the modules anyway, as Python's
current 'Library Reference' docs are largely a rehash of the API information.
By the way, Edward, Tibs, and Eddy, the energy you guys are putting into
ST this month is impressive. You've almost doubled the activity of the
previous most active month in DOC-SIG.
