[vbox-dev] Python bindings: inline help possible?

When I query vbox classes from python help I do not get anything useful.

Example code:
from vboxapi import VirtualBoxManager
mgr = VirtualBoxManager(None, None)
vbox = mgr.vbox
help(vbox)

it returns nothing useful, except C++ class it is based on.

I would like to see:
1. class comments (can it be forwarded to python-bindings-maker via
Doxygen or somehow?)
2. list of class functions
3. list of class parameters

Is it possible to make python bindings generate the inline help ?

For now I use "SDKref.pdf" for this, but I think I would learn faster
using python's built-in help.
