This statement in the Rationale section:

"s = Set(word  for line in page  for word in line.split())"

"Set" should be "set" (lowercase 's')

To modern eyes, that might look like a typo, but it is correct.  It refers to the Set() class in the module, the pure python implementation of sets which pre-dates the c-implementation of the set() built-in type.
