The __dict__ attribute of class objects is documented as being a (standard) dictionary, but implemented with a proxy object. I propose to clarify the documentation in “Custom classes” under <>, and in <>.

I believe my changes are also applicable to Python 2, as long as I point out the proxy is specific to “new-style” classes.
