[New-bugs-announce] [issue41055] Remove outdated tests for tp_print

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

There are ancient tests for printing some basic types: str (actually a mix of Python 2 str and unicode), list, tuple, bool, set, deque, defaultdict. They are essentially tests for the tp_print slot. But since the tp_print slot is no longer used, they are virtually repeat tests for str or repr. These tests are outdated and no longer serve the initial purpose. To avoid confusion it is worth to remove them.
