Thanks for the explanation of the patch keyword. Its description (click on “Keywords”) is indeed generic (“contains patch”), http://www.python.org/dev/patches/ should probably say it too.

I don’t have enough knowledge to make a useful comment on the rest of your reply. Other people most certainly will.

I think two of my remarks are not addressed by your reply:
- Is the term “order comparisons” used in the doc? If not, its
meaning is non-obvious, and I’d like to find something clearer.
- Testing with “is” is called identity testing, “in” is membership or containement testing. Where are they called “comparisons”?
