For the record, the bug that caused the following to be equivalent:

  parser['DEFAULT'] = {'option': 'value'} 
  parser['DEFAULT'].update({'option': 'value'})

has been fixed for 3.3.1+ only. This way it's going to be easier for users to reason about the fix ("it was broken in 3.2.0 - 3.3.0").

Note that the bug only affected __setitem__ on the default section.
