Shouldn't Python use PEP8 in its examples in the documentation ? I found a lot of missing spaces around binary operators, and things like "setup (name = 'PackageName'," (found in the Distributing section, but that's just a single example) which hurt my eyes and will probably teach bad practices to newcomers reading it.

If everybody agree documentation examples should be PEP8 compliant, I'll can gladly provide some patches.

I also found which is probably not merged as it's still open, and the patch don't fix my example, so there is probably some problems left.
