> Run "pydoc -w <name>" to write out the HTML documentation for a module
to a file named "<name>.html".

As mentioned in the help this works only for modules and since import is a keyword it throws an error. Maybe this could be added as an enhancement?

Given EOL is this still relevant? as it is marked 2.7
