[docs] [issue19067] Built-in range docstrings are not PEP-8 compatible

Marco Buttu report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Marco Buttu:

The range documentation is not PEP-8 compatible:

>>> range.__doc__.splitlines()[-1]
'Returns a virtual sequence of numbers from start to stop by step.'
>>> range.__reversed__.__doc__
'Returns a reverse iterator.'
>>> range.index.__doc__.splitlines()[-1]
'Raises ValueError if the value is not present.'

They should have been 'Return...' and 'Raise...'. Patch is attached
