In the 'copy' module documentation, it wasn't fully clear to me how __deepcopy__ implementations should treat the memo dict argument.  The attached patch clarifies that __deepcopy__ implementations should treat the memo dict argument as an opaque type.

I would rather say simply "The memo dictionary should be treated as an opaque object".  On the other hand, I doubt we will ever change the structure of the memo dict, because I'm sure that somewhere out there there is code that is *not* treating it as opaque :)

The Pr should sort this. I will merge it tommorrow if there is no objection.
