New submission from paul stoop <paul.stoop.nl at gmail.com>:

On page http://docs.python.org/ref/notation.html the following text:
    name  	::=  	lc_letter
    lc_letter 	::= 	"a"..."z"
The first line says that a name is an lc_letter followed by a sequence
of zero or more lc_letters and underscores

should read (imho) 
    name  	::=  	lc_letter(_|lc_letter)*
