And this is another example of why we need doc-string reforms. Here we
have a well know "pythonista" (for lack of better word) who needs to
write a test for doc-string inclusion because he refuses to get in the
habit of writing them. People, EVERY method and function MUST have a
doc-string! What is the purpose of having doc-strings if we are too
lazy to use them!
