The "common stumbling blocks" section reads:

* Code that unconditionally strips the trailing ``L`` from the
``repr()`` of a long integer will chop off the last digit instead.

This explains a problem and a fix without any reason (one has to guess
it from context).
It should first mention that the 'L' is no longer displayed.
