[docs] [issue11165] Document PyEval_Call* functions

New submission from Nick Coghlan <ncoghlan at gmail.com>:

There are currently undocumented PyEval_Call* equivalents to a number of the PyObject_Call* functions.

Since there are resources out there on the web that direct people to use the currently undocumented PyEval functions, it would be good to document those properly, and recommend people typically use the PyObject_Call* variants instead (as the latter include all the stack and interpreter state integrity protection code, while the PyEval variants assume that has all already been handled).
