That is very impressive. I saw a similar plugin which had a big drawback: 
it didn't know the object type you need context help for. E.g. it offers 
you help for the .split method even though you are dealing with an object 
which does not have this method assigned. The great advantage of the IDLE 
is that it really understands Python. So it knows about object types you 
work with. I'm curious how you handle that. Perhaps the python features in 
Vim have that built-in. But Vim scripting looked even evil for me... and 
I've been working with Perl for a decade. :)

Thanks for your contribution.
