I want to run the pydoc server while doing development inside a container.  However, the pydoc http server only binds to localhost with no option to override this.  This means that if I'm trying to read the docs from a remote machine,  I have to do some network Jiu Jitsu.

Acceptance Criteria:
- Pydoc takes a new argument that overrides the hostname the server binds to.
- Pydoc continues to default to localhost
