Ok, I thought you were complaining that the a and x in the examples
were not consistently using the same variable (which is not
super-important but Ralf fixed it anyway).  Now I see that you were
saying that the variable name in parameters was not the same as that
in the example.  Good catch.  I've now made the examples all use a.
Also, the example in the extended summary was very unpythonic, so I
removed the loop.  I think that's ok but someone tell me if it's not,
or just go fix it.  I did test it on a case like one of the examples
and it worked.
