I think even Grant would agree that when you call "help(make_widget)",
you should see something like:
make_widget(styleID, material) -> widget or
raise ValueError on failure
styleID: numeric ID or string name of the widget style
material: WidgetMaterial instance or None to use default
See source code for details.
