[New-bugs-announce] [issue16802] fileno argument to socket.socket() undocumented

Richard Oudkerk report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Richard Oudkerk:

The actual signature is

    socket.socket(family=AF_INET, type=SOCK_STREAM, proto=0, fileno=None)

but the documented signature is

    socket.socket([family[, type[, proto]]])

Should the fileno argument be documented or is it considered an implementation detail?
