They're in Doc/whatsnew/ . People can submit patches or, for small things,
make changes and check them in; I'll rewrite later if I feel like it.
I've been only half-following this thread. In the end, is there any
consensus on __slots__? Should the "What's New" document only mention them
as a way to save memory, or should their use be discouraged? (I have no
reservations about describing a new feature as not particularly useful, or
about suggesting that a feature's use be avoided.)
