New submission from Rob Browning:
Here (http://docs.python.org/2/c-api/arg.html), the documentation for "t#" says:
t# (read-only character buffer) [char *, int]...
while the documentation for "w#" says:
w# (read-write character buffer) [char *, Py_ssize_t]...
However, from getargs.c, it looks like they're handled the same with respect to the size type.
At a minimum, it seems like it might make sense to change these docs to match, and if "w#" and "t#" are actually handled similarly to "s#", it would be even better to just change their docs to match (or refer to) "s#"'s which are more detailed, i.e. they mention the PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN issues, etc.

Python 2.7 is no longer supported.
