[docs] [issue37051] Glossary item "hashable" incorrect

John Riehl report at bugs.python.org

New submission from John Riehl <john.riehl at outlook.com>:

The entry in the glossary for "hashable" (https://docs.python.org/3/glossary.html#term-hashable) states "All of Python’s immutable built-in objects are hashable." Tuples are described as immutable sequence types (https://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#immutable-sequence-types), but they are not hashable unless all of their elements are hashable. Suggest updating the glossary to reflect this.
