[docs] [issue19023] ctypes docs: Unimplemented and undocumented features

New submission from Sye van der Veen:

In the ctypes documentation, there's mention of a BigEndianUnion/LittleEndianUnion that isn't actually implemented, and the "Arrays and pointers" section just reads "Not yet written".

The attached patch adds the (Big|Little)EndianUnion classes (with tests), finishes the Array/_Pointer class docs (and adds missing cases to the tests), and makes some stylistic improvements to docs.

The patch was made against default, but it's quite likely it could be back-ported all the way to Python 3.1.
