Another point is that, "wp is defined as the fixed-point of a contractive
function," but I am not sure there is "the" fixed-point.  Previously in the
documentation it is only said that a contractive function has "a"

- Is it indeed "the" fixed-point"?
- If not, in what sense a chosen fixed-point is canonical?

Thank you,
