[New-bugs-announce] [issue2001] Pydoc interactive browsing enhancement

New submission from Ron Adam:

This patch removes the gui tk control panel and replaces it with a
navigation bar on the served web pages.

This offers a nicer user experience because one no longer needs to jump
back and forth between windows.

The navbar supports getting specific modules, searching modules, and
returning to the main module index. I believe the file source view is
safer also.

Possible issues...
+ Restarting the server without ending it causes an error do to the port
already being used.  I think this is not new.

+ There may be some brakage if other applications depend on the tk
interface, but I don't think any do.  Or at least none that I know of.

+ I haven't tested this on windows.  (It works well on Ubuntu 7.10)
