[Python-Dev] version numbers mismatched in google search results.

I get caught out a lot by the titles Google is showing for pages quite
often too, but as far I can tell they are not related to the /dev docs.
If I Google "python builtins" the top 3 results, for me, are as follows:
2. Built-in Functions -- Python v2.7.6 documentation ->
28.3. builtins -- Built-in objects -- Python 3.3.3 documentation ->
Built-in objects - Python 3.3.3 documentation ->
The top two are fine, but the last one is a Python 2 docs page but Google
shows the title as being for 3.3. This seems to be really common when
googling for python docs.
At least the design of the two versions is different enough that you spot
it immediately, but it happens often enough to be confusing all the same!
