[docs] [issue23512] The list of built-in functions is not alphabetical on https://docs.python.org/2/library/functions.html

That was me in #10299 (the issue contains a discussion about the ordering in the last few messages).

Since there are only 4 functions, I think it would be ok removing them from the table and instead add a sentence like "In addition, there are other 4 built-in functions that are no longer considered essential: apply, buffer, coerce, and intern.  They are documented in the Non-essential Built-in Functions section.".

See also #16927 for a proposed grouping that might help solve this issue.
