This is a bit of a silly question, but where is PyArg_Parse documented?  I've
checked the source, the faq, and the C api manual, and no luck.  Reading
module source is sort of risky because there seems to have been several
different versions and syntaxes for PyArg_* over the years.

Also, the intro to the "utilities" chapter for the api manual should probably
be altered to be less misleading.  It currently says:

The functions in this chapter perform various utility tasks, such as parsing
function arguments and constructing Python values from C values. 

In fact, the functions in that chapter do neither of those things.
