Shouldn't there be an update of the 2.6 documentation too?

After your patch, the 2.7 reflects the existence of the "--user" option (see but not the 2.6 documentation (

In my personal experience, I used the "--home" option with python 2.6 to mimic what "--user" does and it took me 2 weeks to, by chance, stumble upon which informed me that the "--user" option was originally available for python 2.6. If it had been on the 2.6 documentation, it would have been easier and more coherent IMHO.
