python style guide inconsistencies

I was just searching for some guidance on how to name packages and modules,
and discovered some inconsistencies on the www.python.org.
http://www.python.org/doc/essays/styleguide.html says "Module names can be
either MixedCase or lowercase." That page also refers to PEP 8 at
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/, which says "Modules should have
short, all-lowercase names. ... Python packages should also have short,
all-lowercase names ...".

Which is most up to date? Is this the right place to point out that one of
those pages needs to be updated?

Thanks,
Darren
