I'm happy to improve the docs and docstring a bit to match the description for range().
I don't want to change any of the keyword arguments because it can break code that currently works and has been working for ages. It's a fact of life that the range() signature is complicated to express in pure Python. I don't feel any need to reformulate the existing code -- it has been working fine for people for a *very* long time. Conceptually, it's misleading but in practice people seem to just get it.
