How are the new string functions imported from python? How are they exposed?

I think the doc editor only picks up functions that are exposed in an __all__
and maybe also from a module that doesn't have an __all__

cross linking should work once the doc editor is able to pick up the
functions in
http://docs.scipy.org/numpy/docs/numpy-docs/reference/routines.char.rst/

That's my impression of the doc editor so far.
