Couldn't find how to escape % and $ in the documentation, so I thought I add a short patch.

LGTM so can we have a formal patch review please, thanks.

Thanks for the patch. Two things:

* We want to keep docstrings short so could you please revert the changes in Lib/configparser.py?

* It would be better to just add an example of escaping these characters in the "Interpolation of values" section (preferably with a short comment.)
