15.1.5. Files and Directories
os.chmode entry: I recommend changing the first sentence
"Change the mode of path to the numeric mode."
"Change the mode of path to the integer mode (such as 0x755)."

For 2.7, delete the 'x'.

This should make it clear to Unix users that they can use the usual octal designations.
