Hmm, the language reference is targeted at people *implementing* Python,
not people who are learning to use it (though it is valuable for them
also). It would be rather overwhelming for a beginner, IMO.
You should instead be directing newcomers to beginner documentation,
such as <URL:https://wiki.python.org/moin/BeginnersGuide> and especially
the Python tutorial <URL:http://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/>.
