After discussion on IRC, have decided to make the Set ABC more closely match setobject.c:

1) loosen setobject.c binary operations to accept any Set rather than any set/frozenset (see attached patch).

2) tighten Set.__or__, etc to only accept Set rather than any Iterable

3) add Set.update(), Set.difference(), etc so that iterable inputs can be handled without a first casting an iterable input to be a Set.
