Whining about "struct"

I have a bad memory.  I admit it.  Because of that, the Python "help"
system is invaluable to me.  Up through Python 2.5, I could get a quick
reference to the format specifiers for the struct module via
  import struct; help(struct)

I used that a LOT.

But in Python 2.6, the struct module moved from Python code to C code, and
that helpful help string was removed.

Is that still gone in Python 3.1?  What are the chances of reinstating that
helpful chart?
