We do not document removals after they are done as they are not an issue for back-compatibility (unlike changes and additions).

Deprecation Warnings are optionally available for checking forward-compatibility. Deprecations are sometimes noted in the regular text flow with things like "encodestring is a deprecated alias", but they are not set off with separate versionchanged: notices, as nothing has changed yet. Some deprecated features are not even documented.

The 'version' arg of class ArgumentParser is already not documented in 3.2, which is why the patch does not change argparse.rst.

"A third argument, max_buffer_size, is supported, but unused and deprecated." and "A fourth argument, max_buffer_size, is supported, but unused and deprecated." is enough for that parameter (and the patch removes those lines -- the param was already left out of the signature).
