Hello,

first of all, I must say that you did a great job with these Tools. Specially the debugger!

Now a little question. For example, if we take the os.path.realpath() method from the standard library, it can be found in the following files :

macpath.py

ntpath.py

os2emxpath.py

posixpath.py

The problem is that the doc string for this method is not the same in all files (or doesn't exist in some files). The Intellisense database builder takes only the doc string from macpath.py . Would it be possible to display all the available doc strings in Intellisense?

Absolutely we can do this.  I'm noticing the experience here is already a little better in the current post 1.1 builds - currently I'm not getting sig help in 1.1 but we do get it in 1.5.  In 1.1 I see no doc string help (running against Python 2.5) in the completion list, in 1.5 I see it for a single method, but we should display it for all methods.
