There's a typo in the function name here. Other than that, the PEP looks 
pretty much fine to me.

About the only other quibble is that it could arguably do with a link to the 
thread where we discussed (and discarded) 'discrete' and 'ordinal' as 
alternative names (you mention the discussion, but don't give a reference).
