Lead, follow, or get out of the way...  I actually originally was thinking
of using javadoc-like markup as well, but my mentions of it brought repeated
references to the Structured Text work.  I personally don't care if Guido
adopts it or not, I just want something that I can use.  Code reuse is
great, but I need the documentation to go with the code.

I'm afraid that I know not Docbook.  I'd be interested in working on
something to do javadoc for Python after TheCLIQ though.  Remember that
hacking party I've been talking about having?  Sounds like a great
justification for it to me.  How about April 15 at our place?
