This, or even somthing resembling it gets a YES vote from me.
I particularly like the what emacs does.
(For the emacs challanged: The first sentence of the paragraph is
supposed to be a short one-line description of the function and rest
of the paragraph describes the function in more detail. The first
sentence, along with the function name is then used to build a data
base which can be searched. The search returns the the function name
and the first sentence. The entire doc string can obtained once the
function name is known.)
