[docs] [issue10789] Lock.acquire documentation is misleading

New submission from Jyrki Pulliainen <jyrki at dywypi.org>:

In threading module, the Lock.acquire documentation is misleading. The signature suggests that the blocking can be given as a keyword argument but that would lead to an TypeError, as thread.lock.acquire does not accept keyword arguments.

The signature in documentation should be formatted as in thread.lock.acquire.
