While porting the Python 3 changes over, I noticed some related problems in the Python 2 and 3 documentation:

* Due to the internal alphabet translation, characters that are in the original base-64 alphabet (+ and /) are not discarded, even if an alternative alphabet is specified
* Doc strings of standard_ and urlsafe_b64decode() need fixing as well
* Found some copy-paste errors in the doc strings
* There are only two distinct base-64 alphabets defined by the RFCs, not three. The URL-safe alphabet and the filename-safe alphabet are the same thing.

Here is a patch for review. I will hold off on this until Issue 1753718 has been sorted out to avoid conflicts in the Python 3 docs.
