With any of these changes in the docs, please don't forget to include
appropriate "versionchanged" directives. Many people using the Python 3
docs at "docs.python.org/3/" will still be on Python 3.2, and thus relying
on the presence of such directives to let them know that while the various
OS-related exception names are now just aliases for OSError in 3.3+, the
distinctions still matter in 3.2.
