[New-bugs-announce] [issue33310] Update references to PIL-style arrays

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka <storchaka+cpython at gmail.com>:

The documentation for buffer protocol and memoryview objects contains references to "PIL-style arrays". Since PIL [1] seems dead (it was not ported to Python 3) and superseded by Pillow [2], I think it is worth to update these references. Either rename "PIL-style arrays" to "Pillow-style arrays" or change the wording to more general.
