[docs] [issue10713] re module doesn't describe string boundaries for \b

New submission from Ralph Corderoy <ralph-pythonbugs at inputplus.co.uk>:

The re module defines \b in a regexp to need \w one side and \W the other.  What about when the end of the string or line is involved?  perlre(1) says that's treated as a \W.  Python should precisely document that case too.
