I don't want to further sprawl the python-dev thread, but it would be great if you could help with issue10587 as well.  That is a documentation-only issue, but there is some disagreement about how specific the docs should be.  Some of the relevant functions are documented in the header files, but some such as str.splitlines() are not.   I am posting it here because the level of detail that we want to document is probably similar in the two issues.  For example, we don't want to document things like int(3, -909) producing 3 in 2.6.  On the other hand, the fact that Arabic numerals are accepted by int() but Chinese are not, should probably be included.
