Hi Laurent,

I'm forwarding your message to the list because it was originally 
auto-discarded.  The ipython lists don't allow non-subscriber posts due to the 
inordinate amout of spam we were getting.  I manually whitelisted you address 
so you can post.

I'll post my actual reply separately, this is just your original message for 
the list.

> Hi,
> We are two people in the process of rewriting pydoc for the standard python
> (with python2.6 as a target), splitting the whole into functional units (modules
> in a package) and creating the units with extensions outside pydoc in mind.
> In all honesty, we have no warranty that it will get included but we
> are committed
> to release a python module that could replace the existing pydoc anyway.
> I have been (and remain) an happy user of ipython, and I was thinking that
> that some of the introspective documention-centered capabilities that we are
> developing could be of interest to the ipython project.
> I see that ipython is being rewritten, and that might well be the right moment
> for me to bring that up and call for comments.
> Anyone to comment ?
> Cheers,
> Laurent
