[New-bugs-announce] [issue10334] Add new reST directive for links to source code

New submission from Raymond Hettinger <rhettinger at users.sourceforge.net>:

In a few cases where the pure python source code is a helpful adjunct to the documentation, I've added some links using the "seealso" directive:

  .. seealso::
     Latest version of the `ast module Python source code

It would be great if a new directive could be introduced for this purpose.  Something like:

.. sourcecode Lib/ast.py

With a directive, we could easily point the root directory to different releases or to a local source directory for local doc build.
