Reopening as doc issue. This is at least the second time this issue has
been reported (see #3724), with some agreement on doc tweak, but not done.
Specific suggestions for math module doc, 9.2.2:
Return the logarithm of x to the given base.
add: ", calculated as log(x)/log(base)" before period.
[This could be removed if better method ever implemented.]
Return the base-10 logarithm of x.
add: "This is usually more accurate than log(x, 10)."
