Summary: Errors in ** docs

Initial Comment:
Section 5.4 "The power operator" is out of date:

1. Raising a postive int to a negative int power no longer 
raises TypeError (it returns a float).

2. It's unclear what "a broken power" means.  Raising a 
negative float to a non-integer power raises ValueError 
(not TypeError), if that's what it means.
