The API in apidoc is developed in a way that it supports other output formats. I tried to cleanly separate, information extraction, information combination, representation atoms and full representation.

I imagine that you could easily build an interface to pydoc using apidoc. If the entire apidoc package is too much overhead, then the pacakge could be split to support those simpler cases.

Apidoc provides the same information as pydoc, in a different layout and structured at different levels.

Even more, apidoc adds interface and adapter information due to the runtime wiring.

Apidoc is limited to the browser and a running zope instance (or a static copy) atm.

Pydoc can be used from the shell, to write to a file, from the python interpreter, from inside the zope debugger and through the browser (running its own HTTP server).

Apidoc provides more information, while pydoc provides more ways to use it.
