But don't you think we should put information like this somewhere, even if it's not in PEP 7? We've had a discussion about this particular issue (idiomatic pointer increments when appending to a buffer) at least twice, and there's also the recent "if (const == variable)" issue that feels similar to me.
It seems to me that recording these decisions somewhere has value, just so we don't have to revisit them.
