The section of the documentation on slicings in 3.0 is substantially 
different than in previous versions, including 2.6.  In particular it 
states that "The primary must evaluate to a maping object." I've 
followed the grammar and the commentary around through a few paths 
and cannot convince myself that the docmentation ever covers sequence 
slicing.  I'm not sufficiently confident of this to post as a bug, so 
I decided to post here first.
