Can you just clarify a bit what you mean by "this":
would my idea of poking a docstring into the wrapper
object work, or do all types share the same wrappers?

It seems as though they *don't* share the same wrappers...

Python 2.2 (#1, Jul 11 2002, 14:19:37) 
>>> id(int.__dict__['__add__'])
>>> id(float.__dict__['__add__'])

...or is there some magic going on there that I'm
not aware of?
