The rationale behind this was that you never call __init__ explicitly,
but always construct an instance using MyClass(parameters). On the
other hand, both "IPython" and "help" now show docstrings for both the
class and __init__ (I can't recall whether this was always the case),
so it probably won't matter much if we move it over.
