[docs] [issue23787] sum() function docstring lists arguments incorrectly

Yes, strings aren't an issue. I only used them as an example.

I came across this issue during code review, discussing if it is okay to pass generator expression to sum() (like sum(x*2 for x in xrange(5)) or is it better to convert it to the list first (sum([x*2 for x in xrange(5)])). Both variants work so docstring is sort of specification here.

Surely, it's not a high priority task anyways.
