Nearly every module entry in the documentation has a headline with the pattern <module name -- description>, followed (in the second line) by <Source code: directory>. In the entry concerning pdb (, there is no hint where the source code is located. This is especially annoying, because the user of the Python Debugger is explicitely invented to extend the module´s capabilities ("The debugger is extensible – it is actually defined as the class Pdb. This is currently undocumented but easily understood by reading the source."). A link to the source code should be added as the second line. The same thing should done for symtable, compileall and perhaps some other modules, which I haven´t checked by now.
