The comments at the top of the library file --
/usr/local/lib/python2.2/ on my box -- should give you much of
what you're looking for in the way of documentation. The source may
prove equally enlightening if you just skip over the stuff you don't
understand. :)

I can't be of further help on the topic, though; I don't know anything
about THIS module, just have done this drill myself a few times. Lots
of undocumented goodies in the standard libraries, if you crack them
open and have a look inside.
