In the documentation for the namedtuple
(http://docs.python.org/3.1/library/collections.html), the following
phrase is incorrect:

The subclass shown above sets __slots__ to an empty tuple. This keeps
keep memory requirements low by preventing the creation of instance
dictionaries.

It should read

The subclass shown above sets __slots__ to an empty tuple. This helps
keep memory requirements low by preventing the creation of instance
dictionaries.

or

The subclass shown above sets __slots__ to an empty tuple. This keeps
memory requirements low by preventing the creation of instance dictionaries.

(either change "keeps" to "helps", or delete the next "keep").
