[New-bugs-announce] [issue23701] Drop extraneous comment from winreg.QueryValue's docstring

New submission from Claudiu Popa:

winreg.QueryValue's docstring has an "interesting" comment at the end:

"But the underlying API call doesn't return the type, Lame Lame Lame, DONT USE THIS!!!"

The documentation (https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/winreg.html#winreg.QueryValue) already mentions the shortcomings of QueryValue. This comment should be removed or at least rewritten in a more serious note.
