PyArg_ParseTuple O format semantics

Steve Alexander kindly forwarded me a note relating to a change in
getargs.c that occurred between  2.0 and 2.0.1. Basically it was implied
that O format conversion was buggy before in term of the refcount of the
returned object.

The documentation doesn't mention any increment so it seems to return a
borrowed ref.

I'm using the O flag a bit and would like to know if I should be
patching to cover the change -->2.0.1?
