Exactly my thoughts, too. I don't think I'll have any use for `math.perm`; the main reason to add it will be to satisfy all those who got taught combinations and permutations at the same time, see them as a unit, and then get surprised when they find `math.comb` without `math.perm`.

The good part is that now that we have math.comb, I think everything about the API of math.perm is already clear (including what to call it).
