I got slightly confused here while playing around.

Python 3.6.0 (default, Jan 31 2017, 11:39:39) 
[GCC 4.9.2] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> class Huacaya:
...   f"""Huacaya!"""
>>> class Suri:
...   f"""{'Suri!'}"""
>>> Huacaya.__doc__ is None
>>> Suri.__doc__ is None

At first I thought f-strings *did* work as docstrings since it worked  just fine for the first class. But, the docstring suddenly vanished when putting an actual expression into it.
