The weakref documentation still mentions weakref.ReferenceError:

https://docs.python.org/3/library/weakref.html#weakref.ReferenceError

But this alias for the built-in ReferenceError exception was removed in the 3.0 development cycle (https://github.com/python/cpython/commit/2633c69fae7e413b2b64b01d8c0c901ae649a225#diff-b7975e9ef5a6be5f64e9bb391de03057), the last version where `weakref.ReferenceError` still exists is Python 2.7.

Please remove it, it's just confusing now.
