it is not obvious that the time.daylight data item reports nonzero
values even when DST is currently not being used (ie. in winter) but the
active timezone has DST defined for some other parts of the year.

Current manual entry can be misleadingly interpreted that time.daylight
acts as a current DST idicator (which it does not).

Suggested FIX: Add a sentence:
This value does not idicate that DST is currently active, but rather
describes that current timezone can have DST. Use localtime() dst flag
to determine if DST applies to the given time.
