AFAICT, http://docs.python.org/X.Y links consistently point to
http://docs.python.org/release/X.Y.Z, where Z is the last micro
release of X.Y major.minor series.  I don't see any reason to change
anything at the moment, but if http://www.python.org will grow X.Y.x
redirects, it would be nice to have the same under
http://docs.python.org/release/ if not under http://docs.python.org/.
