To me, docstring originated changes should be made on the actual source
codes. Since they the preliminary sources for sphinx to work on integrating
with rst documents under the /doc folder in the main numpy trunk. There is a
daily doc build system running so each change will be reflected on the next
build cycle.

Also for a developer, just doing a "svn up" will fetch the necessary updated
from the code-base in this case memmap.py file itself, from there on it's
optional whether to read docstings from the file itself or via IPy or in
another way. The philosophy I like in this design, a well written and
documented code doesn't need an additional documentation because everything
one needs is right in the code :)
