[docs] [issue14804] Wrong defaults args notation in docs

New submission from Hynek Schlawack <hs at ox.cx>:

After having been called out on wrong default arg notation in one of my patches (eg. function:: copyfile(src, dst[, symlinks=False])), I've done a "grep -RPi "\[\w+=" Doc/library" and fixed the cases I've found – many of them sadly from myself (all the symlinks=False ones). ;)

The patch is against tip, I'd back port it to 3.2 if the contents is okay (and do it for 2.7 too, there's a lot of this errors there, I suppose docs fixes are okay for 2.7?).
