[docs] [issue27259] Possible missing deprecation warnings?

Mark Summerfield report at bugs.python.org
Tue Jun 7 15:55:04 EDT 2016

New submission from Mark Summerfield:

In the docs for the array module:
Note 1 in the table of type codes says that the 'u' type is deprecated and will go in Python 4.0.

Since the array.fromunicode() and array.tounicode() methods depend on type code 'u' shouldn't they also be marked as deprecated?

If people use the 'u' type code maybe it would be helpful to provide an example of how to store unicode chars in an array.array? (Presumably they'd use type code 'L' and use ord() and chr()?)
