Your original link is to difflib and that sections shows the methods for 
difflib. Then when we get to Differ it shows compare which is a method 
for Differ. Unless I am misunderstanding something I believe compare is 
shown in the correct location on the page.

If compare was a method of difflib like this: differ.compare it should 
be shown at the location of difflib, but since it is under Differ it 
belongs under Differ.

Please correct me if I am missing something here :)
