ad 3) sorry, I picked a bad example - I didn't mean to suggest that immutable objects should in fact become mutable by modifying their `__doc__` attribute.

ad 1) good, glad to hear that.

ad 2) fine. In fact, I'm not even proposing that per-instance docstring generation should be "on" by default. I'm merely asking whether the Python community can't (or even shouldn't) agree on a single convention for how to represent them, such that special tools can then support them, rather than different tools supporting different syntax / conventions.
