[docs] [issue37608] _thread: acquire_lock, release_lock still in use while declared to be "gone" in Documentation

Brett Cannon <brett at python.org> added the comment:

The documentation is correct by not documenting the methods as they are not meant to be used.

A warning could be added, but it requires new code to wrap the C function with a DeprecationWarning since that code is currently shared between thread.LockType.acquire() and acquire_lock().
