I do not think the partial object should have the original function's
__name__ or __doc__. It is after all not that function, but a callable
that calls it. (This is different from e.g. a decorated function -- the
decorator is taken as "modifying the function", even if it returns a
wholly different one. This is why functools.wraps() exists.)

In any case, this is not a bug but a feature request.
