Bug Description

Hah yes. All non-exception builtins get linked like that -- I wonder how many there are, perhaps they can all be special cased? Or perhaps I can put an "if callable" in somewhere.

Is there a good thing for L{None} to actually link to?

Sometimes in Twisted it's linked to the NoneType instead: http://docs.python.org/2/library/types.html#types.NoneType

Ah, there is http://docs.python.org/2/library/constants.html#None. Special case coming up!

Actually a check for callable neatly weeds out the constants

So, fixed. I still think writing L{None} is silly :)
