While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
that cherrypy could not be built reproducibly.

The attached patch ensures that documentation built bu Epydoc does not contain
non-deterministic values such as memory addresses or timestamps, which are
currently inserted by custom __repr__() overrides present in CherryPy.
Once applied, cherrypy3 can be built reproducibly in our current experimental

Many thanks for considering the patch. 
Best regards
