http://docs.python.org/library/termios.html is missing documentation for ICANON flag used to put terminal to "raw" mode.

It is also worth to place `termios` raw/canonical mode equivalent on `tty` pages, so that people porting C code to Python could understand the hidden magic.

I'm inclined to close as "won't fix" as the third paragraph of the docs states "This module also defines all the constants needed to work with the functions provided here; these have the same name as their counterparts in C. Please refer to your system documentation for more information on using these terminal control interfaces."
