[docs] [issue33028] tempfile.TemporaryDirectory incorrectly documented

Richard Neumann report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Richard Neumann <r.neumann at homeinfo.de>:

The tempfile.TemporaryDirectory is incorrectly documented at https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/tempfile.html#tempfile.TemporaryDirectory.

It is described as a function, though actually being a class (unlinke tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile).
The respective property "name" and method "cleanup" are only documented in the continuous text but not explicitely highlighted as the properties and method of e.g. TarFile (https://docs.python.org/3/library/tarfile.html#tarfile-objects).
