inspect.getsource called with a class defined in the same file fails with
TypeError: <module '__main__' (built-in)> is a built-in class, although the documentation says that:

"The argument may be a module, class, method, function, traceback, frame,
or code object.  The source code is returned as a single string." I think that should be specified in documentation that this function works only for objects living in a module.
