[docs] [issue17902] Document that _elementtree C API cannot use custom TreeBuilder for iterparse or IncrementalParser
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Aaron Oakley:
It would really help to document that the C API can only use the default xml.etree.ElementTree.TreeBuilder for targets with iterparse (and by extension, IncrementalParser).
I got a nice surprise about that when I went from 3.2 to 3.3 and started getting "TypeError: event handling only supported for ElementTree.TreeBuilder targets".
I included a patch to add notes to iterparse and IncrementalParser, but I'm not sure what to refer to the C module as since xml.etree.cElementTree is deprecated.
