It was more a headsup, that the scipy folks need to make a descision
about this. I would like to use pydoc as you did in ipython. And you
were right IMO to ripp of the html-based thing. I write the html-doc's
more to be a kind of handbook, which would be a good place to give
more examples, links between functions and short overview chapters. I
also think about a kind of appendix with a presentation of different
groupings. But that's not the first goal.

As I said, I think ipython would be the best interactive shell for
scipy, also quite unbiased :-).
