[docs] [issue19039] sphinx search, result sorting

New submission from Thomas Guettler:

If you search for "printf" in the docs you get this result:


Please have a look at the first results. I guess most people don't want to see docs about "PyOS_snprintf"

Most people want to see this: http://docs.python.org/3.3/library/stdtypes.html?highlight=printf#printf-style-string-formatting

The good page (stdtypes.html) is the fourth search result.
And this page is huge. Unfortunately the link from the search result does not link to the section, it links to the top of the page.

 Since "printf" is in the heading, sphinx should be able to create a link to the relevant section in this page (in this example #printf-style-string-formatting).

Thank you
