It seems the extent is wider than first outlined. And even if it’s very close to the existing rules, those rules will now be strictly enforced, instead of leaving it up to developers to use common sense. The absolute worst thing about PEP8 e.g. is its strict line length rule, which forces you to awkwardly wrap code in weird places or split lines up into multiple statements, just for the sake of being able to read the code on a 80s terminal.
