New submission from Julien Palard:

While translating doc to french, I found a surprising comment in stdtypes.html 
about sets, stating:

> To support searching for an equivalent frozenset, the elem set is temporarily 
> mutated during the search and then restored. During the search, the elem set 
> should not be read or mutated since it does not have a meaningful value.

So I searched the equivalent in the code, at least to help me understand it to 
translate it in a proper way, but found it has been deleted in 

This commit is in branches 2.7 and 3.1 to 3.6 (and master).
