+    """A class to perform python restructurings
+    A restructuring transforms pieces of code matching `pattern` to
+    `goal`.  In the `pattern` wildcards can appear.  Wildcards match
+    some piece of code based on their kind and arguments that are
+    passed to them through `args`.
+    `args` is a dictionary of wildcard names to wildcard arguments.
+    If the argument is a tuple, the first item of the tuple is
+    considered to be the name of the wildcard to use; otherwise the
+    "default" wildcard is used.
+    `wildcards` is the list of wildcard types that can appear in
+    `pattern`.  See `rope.refactor.wildcards`.  If a wildcard does not
+    specify its kind (by using a tuple in args), the wildcard named
+    "default" is used.  So there should be a wildcard with "default"
+    name in `wildcards`.
+    `imports` is the list of imports that changed modules should
+    import.  Note that rope handles duplicate imports and does not add
+    the import if it already appears.
