Yes, this is a problem with the help function. In pydoc.py in the Python
standard library:

def doc(...):
        if not (inspect.ismodule(object) or
                inspect.isclass(object) or
                inspect.isroutine(object) or
                inspect.isgetsetdescriptor(object) or
                inspect.ismemberdescriptor(object) or
                isinstance(object, property)):
            # If the passed object is a piece of data or an instance,
            # document its available methods instead of its value.
            object = type(object)

Is it possible to make one of the above conditions True for ufuncs?
