two small comments:

just as a quick check, I did a Python search for exactly
that phrase


with zero results.

Maybe it would be a good thing if glossary entries were always
found via the search page.

And about this glossary entry:

"An object that supports the Buffer Protocol"
- can I take that for granted, as a real definition, meaning

"""an object is bytes-like iff it supports the buffer protocol"""?

cheers - Chris
