[Numpy-discussion] help(xxx) vs print(xxx.__doc__)

Can someone explain why help(numpy.r_) doesn't contain all the information
in print(numpy.r_.__doc__)?

Namely you don't get the helpful example showing usage with 'help' that you
get with '.__doc__'.

I'd rather be able to use 'help' as the one-stop shop for built-in
documentation.  It's less typing and just looks nicer.
