[docs] Documentation bug in Format Specification Mini-Language

On this page: http://docs.python.org/library/string.html#formatspec

There are two conflicting definitions for "fill"  the block of definitions lists this:

fill        ::=  <a character other than '}'>

while the text says this:

The fill character can be any character other than '{' or '}'.

The question is then, is a fill character of '{' allowed?  If so, the text needs to change.  If not, the definition block needs to change.
