Comment:

 Actually, the particular "norm" we are using is that the resulting
 histogram is a probability "density" function, not a probability "mass"
 function. That is, the integral over the histogram function is 1, not the
 sums of its bins.

 The implementation is correct as far as it goes, though the docstring is
 lacking.
