[New-bugs-announce] [issue1510] help for file/open should state which is prefered.

New submission from cfk:

bltinmodule.c:

PyDoc_STRVAR(open_doc,
"open(name[, mode[, buffering]]) -> file object\n\
\n\
Open a file using the file() type, returns a file object.");

Help for file() is detailed, which would lead people to use file over
open.  given that file() is removed in py3k, I think that should be
mentioned in the current file() docstring, and swap the help for file/open.
