There's a a feature in scribble/srcdoc that is conceptually meant for
the purpose of docstrings, but they're a bit heavyweight compared to


I have not yet figured out the right way to extract documentation from
scribble/srcdoc-annotated bindings, apart from looking at the
associated HTML page generated from them.

Personally, I like Python docstrings.
