Nope;  just the first two lines of your original post in a
bugs.python.org report would be plenty.  If you make sure to
mark 'Documentation' in the Components field, I think this
will get corrected pretty quickly.

Who is this addressed to?  The chances are that the people
most likely to fix this aren't reading this thread.  I'd fix
it myself, but I'm at work at the moment with no commit access
to the Python svn repo.  And by the time I get home, I'll
probably have forgotten about it.  Filing a bugs.python.org
issue makes sure that this *will* get noticed by someone.
