Support for .pi files, or similar

I couldn't find if Pycharm's analysis supported something like Wingware's .pi files. These are mocked up python files that are used to represent the real documentation for extension modules, or packages that do fancy runtime namespacing.

Something like this is useful and it seems like a good idea if different Python editors and documentation generators converged on a single standard. Wingware has some short documentation about these at http://wingware.com/doc/edit/helping-wing-analyze-code

Hello Peter,

Right now PyCharm doesn't support any such approach; all the fancy stuff

that we support is hard-coded directly inside the PyCharm implementation.

You're welcome to file a feature request at http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/

for .pi files support.
