Committed a modified version of the patch in r88164. I extended your breakout of the attributes to the other paragraphs, and reorganized the order of the paragraphs in the stat docs to put things into a more logical order (I hope). I decided to change the existing wording about the stat system call to reflect the fact that we aren't making a stat system call on Windows, and did something similar in the lstat entry.
This will get backported to the 2.7 docs (and 3.1) presently, but not right away.
