Is there anything actually *wrong* with that FAQ section?  I'm not sure 
how mentioning short float repr would address any particular FAQ.  Unless 
that FAQ is "why do 2.6 and 2.7 give different results?".

I agree that the tutorial section for trunk needs updating.

I also notice that the FAQs for py3k need to be looked at closely:  there 
are a lot of print statements in there, and doubtless some other 2.x-isms.
