[Python-Dev] What's new 2.x in 3.x docs.

The 3.x docs mostly started fresh with 3.0. The major exception is the 
What's new section, which goes back to 2.0. The 2.x stuff comprises 
about 650KB in the repository and whatever that translates into in the 
distribution. I cannot imagine that anyone who only has 3.x and no 2.x 
version would have any interest in the 2.x history. And of course, the 
complete 2.x history will always be available with the latest 2.7.z. And 
the cover page for 3.x could even say so and include a link. So why not 
remove it from the 3.2 release (and have two separate pages for the 
online version)?
