View rendered reStructuredText (Sphinx) docstrings in iPython?

Hello, Does anyone know if it's possible to have iPython render reStructuredText (i.e. Sphinx) docstrings when you type 'help foo', or 'foo?' ? I'm finding that many projects are moving to Sphinx documentation, which makes their docstrings harder to read on the fly (unpythonic?). <rant> Needing a browser to view the docs seems to miss the point of docstrings. </rant> Does iPython have this functionality somewhere? If not, perhaps any devs could suggest where in the iPython source it would go (if this is even feasible)? Thanks in advance, Jon
