[docs] [issue28868] Python advertising BeOpen.com domain

rm report at bugs.python.org

New submission from rm:

There is BeOpen attribution in __builtins__() call, that may confuse users and generate some traffic to unrelated domain.

For example:

>>> import smtplib
>>> smtplib.__builtins__
Copyright (c) 2000 BeOpen.com.
All Rights Reserved.

but beopen.com resolves to domain hosting stub page. May be this string should be changed to just BeOpen, or removed altogether.
