New submission from INADA Naoki <songofacandy at gmail.com>:

http://docs.python.org/library/difflib.html#difflib.SequenceMatcher.quick_ratio
> This isn’t defined beyond that it is an upper bound on ratio(), and is faster to compute.

"beyond" is a bit confusing because it also means "over" and this
sentence refers upper bound.

I think "This isn't defined in detail more than..." is easier.
