The patch has been commited largely as-is (r84486).
I'm not happy with the documentation yet:
- Markup like this:
.. method:: ConfigParser.getint(section, option, raw=False,
doesn't sit well with me. I'm going to dig around current practice
a bit and discuss with Georg sometime over the next few days, and
see how best to adjust that.
- Inclusion of references to internal names in the API docs, like this
in the signatures:
is just bad form. Again, we need a better way. I suspect there is
little if any considered precedent, so we'll come up with something.
Neither of these are blockers; we can adjust this independently of the
code and doocumentation content. (It's not part of the feature.)
Leaving this issue open for the completion of these changes.
resolution: -> accepted
