It seems like it's only in the whatsnew22.tex docs. 

__get__ and __set__ are mentioned in the Doc/ext/newtypes.tex file, 
but that section is commented out with

  % XXX Descriptors need to be explained in more detail somewhere, but
  % not here.

Unfortunately they're not anywhere else, either. Any suggestions for
where they should be documented?
