Certainly. I would wish somebody contributed a documentation patch 
pointing out that specific detail in the documentation (and in
the process making the documentation match the implementation
in the first place), but if nobody comes along, I would do that

I would hope that we can agree to something that has been proposed
as an alternative in http://python.org/sf/1681842 (suggesting
a warning message and keyword arguments), or the two-step change
that Thomas proposed, so you may want to watch this going on for
a little while longer. However, I don't feel qualified anymore to
trust my intuition on what changes are acceptable and which aren't,
so it would be for some other committer (perhaps Thomas or Phillip)
to actually implement such a change.
