That notice primarily refers to the fact that the special names (of
__xxx__ form) returned are implementation and version dependent, and may
not be complete in the sense that dir(ob) may not return __xyz__ even
though ob.__xyz__ exists and can be retrieved.
If you are only interested in regular-name attribute of ob, let your
fear fly away.
