>>> help(str.replace)
Help on method_descriptor:

replace(...)
    S.replace (old, new[, maxsplit]) -> unicode
    
    Return a copy of S with all occurrences of substring
    old replaced by new.  If the optional argument maxsplit is
    given, only the first maxsplit occurrences are replaced.


The variable name maxsplit should be "maxreplacements" or similar.
Also "-> unicode" should be "-> str"
