New function in difflib: get_scored_matches()

This function acts just like the existing get_close_matches()
function however instead of returning a list of words, it 
returns a list of tuples (score, word) pairs.

This gives the end-user the ability to access the
computationally expensive scores/ratios produced as a by-product.

The new usage does _not_ impact backward compatibility::

  >>> import difflib
  >>> import keyword as _keyword
  >>> difflib.get_scored_matches("wheel", _keyword.kwlist)
  [(0.6, 'while')]
  >>> difflib.get_close_matches("wheel", _keyword.kwlist)
