Well, perhaps inspect needs a get_doc_synopsis method :)

Actually, I'm not sure that should be a smiley.

I don't really have a strong opinion on this myself (say I'm +0 for inspect), so I asked a couple other core devs here at the sprint (Eric Smith and Eric Snow), and they both thought it should be in inspect rather than pydoc.  (Eric's Snow reason is that pydoc is not really a user facing library (actually what he said is "it's a mess"), and both thought it was more appropriate for inspect anyway).
