It concerns me that help() gives very different results for some of these functions than the signature you'll find in the documentation. I think a beginner would find that highly confusing. If the view is that the slash notation should not be added to this piece of documentation, since it is aimed at beginners, should help() be changed so that it does not include the slash notation for built-in functions?
