[New-bugs-announce] [issue13053] Add Capsule migration documentation to "cporting"

New submission from Larry Hastings <larry at hastings.org>:

After the great Capsule flame wars of 2011, it became clear that we need documentation on migrating from CObject to Capsules, as CObject is gone as of 3.2.  Nick made me promise to write the documentation, and Raymond steered me in the direction of "cporting.rst" (Porting Extension Modules To Python 3.0).

I already have a patch in reasonable shape.  However, I understand we're doing "forward-porting" (what Monotone calls "daggy fixes").  I think this would be valuable information for 2.7 users.  It includes no code changes (though it does include some sample code).  Would checking it in to the 2.7 head be appropriate?  Once we decide where the checkin should go, I'll produce a patch against that head that will hopefully garner your approval.
