I agree. It is close enough to be a duplicate. I suggest closing it.

As Ka-Ping noted in the other issue:
"There's a link to the base class provided if you want to find out what the base class does."

This is easy to do if your viewing pydoc output in a web browser.  And you can also look at the source code to see any comments.

At some point we can consider enhancing the command line help mode to make it easier to do the same.
