> In the inspect module, I think all the functions take a object and not a 
string, it's the reason why I included the code of pydoc.getdoc() into 

I understand. But you also do inspect.getdoc or inspect.getcomments, which I don't really like.  What's the point of having getcomments there?  Are comments considered docstrings?  If not, then why is the method called splitdocs?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to pushback on the idea (since everybody is agreeing to have it), I just want the naming and behaviour be consistent.
