No, unless you wanted to dynamically read the examples from the docstrings to evaluate them when the examples are queried, either directly or as part of help.
Actually, I don't know if the examples should be automatically displayed with 'help, or queried separately.
Either way, it would be nice to make them automatically evaluated, unless they can't be for whatever reason. It seems like that would be easiest to do with something like the existing examples macro, but if you think it would be doable with docstrings I guess that could work.
Well, that's what I'm suggesting. I don't see the other cases as essential, and the interface seems simpler that way. I'm lazy too, which means that if I'm making examples, I'd rather not have to provide the results. Not that I couldn't, but I'd like the option at least to do otherwise.
As always, you don't have to change anything just to meet my opinions. I'm used to being in the minority, in fact.
