Very nifty and pretty.  For the pathetically lazy (like myself) I often call 
pydoc.html.document(object) or pydoc.text.document(object) when debugging. 
Not as complete and pretty as what Amir has written, though, and it doesn't 
introspect objects.  And the html links won't work of course, but the text 
version can be handy in logs.
