Can Epydoc exclude wxPython?

I would like to use Epydoc (3.0beta1) to document my wxPython (2.6.10)
application. The problem is that I can't seem to instruct Epydoc to not
also generate partial documentation of wxPython, which makes too much
verbiage for a user to wade through in order see the documentation of my

For example, if my module consists of only the three lines

import wx
class BasicPanel(wx.Panel):

the generated documentation for BasicPanel is completely swamped by the
over 100 instance methods and static methods for wx._core.Window, etc.

I've tried using the "exclude" command in a config file and command line
and also sprinkling around "@undocumented" commands in the .py file.
Neither of these make any difference as far as I can see, but they
aren't documented well in Epydocs so I'm not completely sure that I'm
using them correctly, although I've tried many, many variations all to
no avail. I've also tried turning off introspection and/or parsing, but
then the Epydoc output isn't as good.

Does anyone know of a way to avoid this? Short of fixing this in
Epydoc, how about a different documentation package -- I chose Epydoc
because it included clickable inheritance trees in the docs. Is there
another package that does this?

I installed Epydoc using epydoc-3.0beta1.win32.exe on Windows XP and am
using Python 2.4.3.

Thanks for any help,

P.S. - I haven't found any other group or mailing list that might be a
more focused forum for this question. Please let me know if you know of
