[docs] "What's new in Python 2.7" makes a confusing statement about string/float conversions.

I found this phrase in the section

Float-to-string and string-to-float conversions now round their results more
correctly, and repr() of a floating-point number x returns a result that’s
guaranteed to round back to the same number when converted back to a string.

I think this should say "...when converted back to a float."
