New submission from Sandro Tosi <sandro.tosi at gmail.com>:

given I can't fully comprehend the user request (sent on docs@ as of http://mail.python.org/pipermail/docs/2011-September/005791.html), I'm just echoing it :

recently I embedded Python into one of my applications, which included
some string parsing.
In my opinion the doc page about parsing arguments
(http://docs.python.org/c-api/arg.html) is missing the information, that
you must not free the returned const char *, like e.g. said here
It was quite confusing for my first, so I would suggest adding this tiny
bit of information.
