Hi everyone, My name is Meng xinfan, I guess I am "the other student" that also interested interested in this project. I don't konw whether I am a little too late to say  hello here. Whatever, I think I would just propose some ideas here.
what I find jython most amazing is that I can test some java library in real time, swing and jdbc for example. I really like the idioms that we can try before we use it. I think that is the most powerful aspect of this language. A good help system can make jython even more attractive, as a vim fan, I prefer the vim way. That is, the only thing I need to do is typing commands in one window. since documents may be too long and always wash away the previous content (yes, I really hate this behaviour when using python interpreter).  I think we should display them in a separate window.
I think now I need to dig into the help() don't work bug, can anyone point me to the disscusion about this topic? thanks
