From the context of help(typical_subclass_of_abstract_thing.method), the user isn't told what the base classes are or which one might have documentation.  So it could become an exercise in frustration.

and LOL yes the parameter name is silly but that's a separate module wide cleanup that could be done - inspect is full of public APIs that shadow object as a parameter name.  it is often quite old code.
