I just updated the docs to what I think is the current reality.  See issue 23740 for what I think are problems with the current implementation, aside from any enhancement of computing a length for tuple or list.  Since the latter cannot be done reliably unless we know the list or tuple is all bytes, I propose that we don't do it at all (since I'd like to see iterables of text strings supported).
