String interpolation in libstdtypes.tex doesn't yet
document PEP 237 (integer unification) changes.
Specifically that: %u %x %X and %o now do signed
conversions and that %u is obsolescent.

Also,  I can't parse the sentence beginning "The length

Update stdtypes.rst to note that %x, %X, %o can take signed values.

Note that %u is consider obsolete (referring to PEP 237)

Add a note on the length modifier description to clarify the meaning.
