  Log Message:
  Docs: Add note regarding "reversed" flag in heapq.merge (#300)

The docs for `heapq.merge` are a little misleading. Iterables passed
into heapq.merge with the reversed flag enabled must be sorted from
largest to smallest to achieve the desired sorting effect, but the
previous paragraph states that they should be sorted from smallest
to largest.
