The point of this bug report was that 3.x pydoc was sending users to
2.7, which is clearly unacceptable. As long as documentation bug fixes
are backported to maintenance branches, I don't see an advantage in
consulting 3.2 when developing for 3.1.

Now, I keep this issue open to decide if we should backport this to
2.7 where this is not a bug (yet), but will be when default docs
switch to 3.x.  What do you think?
