Exactly ! I'm fully aware of the ubiquity of objects in Python, and it is for that reason that I had naively expected `pydoc` to simply DoTheRightThing when encountering an object containing a `__doc__` attribute. rather than only working for types and function objects.

OK, assuming that this is a recognized bug / limitation, it seems easy to address.

Is there any discussion concerning what syntax might be used for docstrings associated with objects ? (There seem to be some partial solutions added on top of the Python parser (I think `epydoc` offered one), but it would be nice to have a built-in solution to avoid having to re-invent wheels.
