Thank you Georg, I updated the patch

Ezio, wouldn't  start=0  in the signature  imply that sum accepted a keyword argument? I read "Documenting Python" (4.3) but am not sure about the distinction of default values or keyword arbuments.

>>> sum([1,2,3], start=4)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: sum() takes no keyword arguments
