#9438: clarify that constant names also cannot be assigned as attributes.

A small number of constants live in the built-in namespace. They are:
.. data:: False
The false value of the :class:`bool` type.

Special value used in conjunction with extended slicing syntax.
.. XXX Someone who understands extended slicing should fill in here.
.. data:: __debug__
This constant is true if Python was not started with an :option:`-O` option.
Assignments to :const:`__debug__` are illegal and raise a :exc:`SyntaxError`. See also the :keyword:`assert` statement.
- The names :data:`None` and :data:`__debug__` cannot be reassigned
- (assignments to them, even as an attribute name, raise :exc:`SyntaxError`),
- so they can be considered "true" constants.
- .. versionchanged:: 2.7
Assignments to ``__debug__`` as an attribute became illegal.
this shouldn't be here.
Constants added by the :mod:`site` module
