The urllib.urlencode documentation is unclear with regard to the 'doseq' option. In my opinion it does not clearly state what its functionality is.

An elaboration as requested on IRC: It appears to make claims about 'the sequence', but doesn't make clear that 'doseq' matters when *v* is a sequence. It is easy to assume it refers to the query sequence, which is of course always a sequence.

Agree to your concern that doseq parameter is not properly explained.
Fixed in r81645, r81646, r81647 and r81648.
