[docs] Bug: I can't find documentation for the "apply" function, and then I can't find documentation for "extended call syntax"

P.S. I still can't find it when I read the Python Tutorial.
There's a section on Defining Functions, then there's More About
Defining Functions.
However there's no section about calling functions.
