Nice.  The Python Reference defines objects, the core concept
of Python, as id, type, and value, and then leaves one clueless
about what a value is, and several notable Python contributors
declare the subject boring.

I guess this goes a long way to explaining why the Python docs
suck so badly in many areas.
