Thanks, Terry.  If anyone is curious, it looks like the verbose keyword argument was added to the docs (and to threading.py) in revision f71acc4b2341, and then subsequently removed (but not from the docs) in revision 8ec51b2e57c2.

> (The fact that we found 2 doc signature errors other than the 4 missing *s suggests that we need a tool to systematically compare doc signature to code signature.)

Out of curiosity, can anyone summarize what our existing tooling might already be able to do in this regard (e.g. Sphinx or pydoc)?

I will update the patch.
