Yeah, not till next week though.  I think __str__ needs to change.

    443         if not (getattr(self, "longdesc", None) is None):
    444             longdesc = self.longdesc
    445         else:
    446             import __main__
    447             if getattr(__main__, '__doc__', None):
    448                 longdesc = __main__.__doc__
    449             else:
    450                 longdesc = ''

Probably needs to change to check self.subCommands[2].__doc__ if it
exists, or something like that.  I'll take a look next week.
