?? python docs have nothing to do with python??
python docs by default on linux are read with info and many seem to
find info unpleasant to use.

Myself an old emacs user and cant say info helps me as much as google.
However comparing info and man is also a bit strange.  The printed
python docs come to several thousand pages.  Do we want them to be 1
manpage? a hundred? a thousand?
