that stuff -
that should definitely come first.

create a function that would then be able to have a __doc__ that would
be displayed by help.

Yes - that would be more or less the way to go -

Did the code in the link above work for you? (I have not tried it yet)

It isn't properly dealing with Nones everywhere yet, but for the most part
