PEP 8 says:

"""
Class Names
Almost without exception, class names use the CapWords convention. Classes for internal use have a leading underscore in addition.
"""

yet there are some notable exceptions in practice, such as classes designed to be context managers (used with the `with` statement).

This message indicates Nick's implementation choice of a wrapper function in part to avoid naming a class with all lower cases (which look better with `with`, but break the PEP 8 convention).

The PEP 8 language should be revised, but striking the right balance might be a little tricky.
