It says *minimum* size for a reason. The *actual* sizes of the types used in array are platform-dependent. 2 is the smallest that an int can be (it is probably not that size on any currently supported platforms, but would have been in DOS), and 4 is the smallest size a long can be (any 32-bit python build, and I think also any build on Windows, will have it be this size).
