+1 for Martin's suggestion of removing the inconsistency the other way (i.e. allowing "() = iterable" to mean the same thing as "[] = iterable", effectively asserting that an iterable is empty)

I also agree with Raymond that it doesn't need to be mentioned in the What's New doc, just in the NEWS file.
