In resolving issue 34008, we determined that we *do* support calling Py_Main after Py_Initialize, but it's not clear from that current documentation that this implies a Py_Finalize() call, so you don't need to call that again yourself (and it's actually an error to do so).

So this issue covers updating the draft PR I wrote at to move the Py_Main documentation into the initialization and finalization section, and clarify how it relates to the other initialization and finalization functions.

Adjusted target versions, as I never previously got around to merging this PR.

Added 3.8 back in to the target versions. However, if the automatic backport doesn't work for that branch, I'll probably skip it rather than fixing any conflicts.
