[IPython-dev] instance docstring vs class docstring

This is not real the right mailing list to ask this question, but as it
is ipython related I will go ahead...
If I have a module with code like this:
a = A()
and I import it in ipython.
a? return the proper docstring (the instance's), but "help(a)" returns
the class's docstring.
Is there a way to avoid this inconvenient ? Do you think modifying
ipython's "help" function to workaround this would be a good idea ?
