Python docs disappointing - group effort to hire writers?

I too find the Python docs not very useful and it really slows down my  
learning curve.

I wonder if it would make sense to find good tech writers, get a  
quotes, and get some professionally written documentation WITH LOTS OF  
EXAMPLES added to the standard Python documentation tree.

I'd chip in money for that task. I've certainly spent enough buying  
Python books to where it would be very reasonable to chip in the cost  
of one book towards this project. Get enough people ... could be a  
great thing.

Even though it is not the version I use, I would suggest that the  
really detailed docs with lots of examples be written against the  
latest python version.

Just a thought.
