How to set docstrings for extensions supporting PyNumberMethods?

I am writing a python extension (compiled C code) that defines an
extension type with PyNumberMethods. Everything works swimmingly,
except I can't deduce a clean way to set the docstring for tp_*
methods. That is, I always have
type.__long__.__doc__ == 'x.__long__() <==> long(x)'
which a quick glance at the Python 2.5 source shows is the default.
I have found that I can use PyObject_GetAttr and PyWrapperDescrObject
and set the descriptor objects d_base->doc to a char pointer... but I
can't tell if this is safe. Or the right way to do it.
If I'm on the wrong list, please let me know!
