That has several issues. One is that you can't do string operations with
it. Say you wanted some %d, %s etc in the string. If you use a documentation
generator (eg epydoc) then the code becomes the API documentation for the
function. Finally it bloats binary distributions. For example BitPim
is 7-10MB binary distribution, full compressed with all doc strings
removed. Including doc strings adds another 3MB to the compressed binary
Instead I would suggest looking at the compile/eval/exec builtins in Python
for inspiration. You can give a string to compile and it gives you something
you can execute later in varying contexts.
