ns collects the description and methods, ... for an object, e.g. for a
class, this is given as argument to the

          rendered = template.render(**ns)

which does the actual rendering of template plus info in `ns` to string.
The template is supposed to produce valid rst with sphinx
instructions. I don't know where the HACK came from.
