It is the example data provided with the PyMOTW tutorial.

Near the top of the article (from the link you provided) you'll see the
heading "Test Data". I assume the author wants you to copy and paste the
source into a new file named difflib_data.py in your working dir.
Alternatively, it looks like you can download all the source and example
data for all PyMOTWs in one compressed file:

PyMOTW has a cheese shop entry also (http://pypi.python.org/), so one
would assume you could get the source with easy_install as well, but
I've never tried it.
