Python bindings are 95% identical to their C++ counterparts. Although
it would be fine to have also special pyqgis documentation, I don't
know how to produce it. The documentation system would have to parse
*.sip files and produce appropriate output from it. In this case,
things like pydoc are simply unusable - pydoc is good for commenting
python code, but this is c++ code wrapped into python.
