[docs] [issue26135] Documentation Recommends Deprecated `imp` Module

New submission from Cameron Conn:

The documentation detailing modules recommends using the deprecated `imp` module in section 6.1. Instead, it should recommend `importlib`, which `imp` was deprecated in favor of in Python 3.4.

The portion of the documentation that says this is in the gray aside box at the bottom of Section 6.1 immediately before Section 6.1.1.

These are the pages that have this issue:
Python 3.4: https://docs.python.org/3.4/tutorial/modules.html#more-on-modules
Python 3.5: https://docs.python.org/3.5/tutorial/modules.html#more-on-modules
Python 3.6: https://docs.python.org/3.6/tutorial/modules.html#more-on-modules
