[docs] [issue15439] Include Misc/ACKS names into the documentation

New submission from Chris Jerdonek <chris.jerdonek at gmail.com>:

This issue is to include the names in Misc/ACKS into the documentation --
in place of the names from Doc/ACKS.txt.  This was mentioned in the
discussion for issue 15437, which is to add the names from Doc/ACKS.txt
into Misc/ACKS.

This issue should be done shortly after issue 15437.  The current issue
can include (1) converting Misc/ACKS into rst format, (2) deleting
DOC/ACKS.txt (after confirming that any changes since issue 15437 are
reflected in Misc/ACKS), and (3) resolving the intros in the two files
with about.rst's surrounding text so that the text makes sense when
included into the main documentation.

Should Guido's note of acknowledgment in Misc/ACKS be included as is?
And should a new "Python Acknowledgments" section be added to the docs,
or is it okay for this more general acknowledgment to be included in the
section called "About these documents"?  If the former, the "About these
documents" section could link to the more general "Python
Acknowledgments" section to reference documentation contributors.
