My first priority is that doc and code match. Close second is consistency (hence, ease of learning and use) between various AssertXs.
Symmetrical diffs (element in first not in second, element in second not in first) solves the problem without imposing an order on the arguments.
Where applicable, I prefer this as unambiguous output headings.
Could you explain what you mean?
I was referring back to an output example symmetric diff that was clipped somewhere along the way:
In x not in y: ... In y not in x: ...
rather than just using -,+ prefixes which are not necessarily self-explanatory. 'Not applicable' would refer to output from difflib which necessarily is ordered.
