There is still documentation for sys.maxint even though it no
longer exists in Python 3.0:

$ /tmp/p3.0/bin/python
Python 3.0a2 (r30a2:59382, Dec 13 2007, 11:07:38)
[GCC 3.4.3 20050227 (Red Hat 3.4.3-22.1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> [x for x in sys.__doc__.split('\n') if x.find('maxint') != -1]
['maxint -- the largest supported integer (the smallest is -maxint-1)']
>>> sys.maxint
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'maxint'
