I tried, but it fails to run through python code that's not backwards 
compatible with older python versions.

It fails with: ...autodoc can't import/find module 'pytilities', it 
reported error: "invalid syntax (, line 55)"...

This is line 55 (runs in python3, not in python):
def process_args(self, *args, kwargs={})
