I don't understand what you mean here, please be as specific as possible.  Do 
you just want the order to be changed, so docstrings go last?

You could just override getdoc in OInspect, but I have a feeling that some of 
what you want to do is simply impossible.  You'll need to be very clear and 
specific in describing (make up a mock example if you want) _exactly_ what you 
need to do.  Only in that case will I be able to help you further.

With a proper explanation, the fix was actually trivial.  Checked into CVS, 
let me know if it does what you need.
