[Python-Dev] readonly __doc__

Speaking of the __doc__ property, I just noticed the following thing on py3k:

>>> class C: pass
>>> C.__doc__ = "hop"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: attribute '__doc__' of 'type' objects is not writable

Is this deliberate?
