Martin Panter added the comment:

Patch v3:

* Reverted to original crc32(b"hello") example call with the implicit initial CRC
* Added “Changed in version 3.0” notices, restoring a brief version of the suggestion to use the bit mask, along with an explanation.

Python 2 compatibility information is generally unprecedented in the Python 3 documentation though, but hopefully this version should make more sense to people not already familiar with the Python 2 odd behaviour.
