New submission from Bernt Røskar Brenna:
At least for me (non-english speaker), the following is confusing:
"Modifying dirnames when topdown is False is ineffective, because in bottom-up mode the directories in dirnames are generated before dirpath itself is generated."
I suggest to replace "is ineffective" with "has no effect".
Ineffective could also mean: "Has low performance", could it not?
