I'm happy to improve the docs and docstring a bit to match the description for range().

I don't want to change any of the keyword arguments because it can break code that currently works and has been working for ages.  It's a fact of life that the range() signature is complicated to express in pure Python.  I don't feel any need to reformulate the existing code -- it has been working fine for people for a *very* long time.   Conceptually, it's misleading but in practice people seem to just get it.
