docco looks nice, similar to Masklinn's Pycco. But it's a generator  
(output is not for consumption in the editor.)

Superimpose that screenshot over your favorite editor; imagine being able  
to edit the left-panel without writing markup; imagine a few blog-style  
comments from your fellow developers then we're onto something.
