So, both linecache2 and traceback2 are quite poorly documented in this
regard. They seem to be backports of linecache and traceback from Python
3 to Python 2.x, but both these modules existed in Python 2.x, so I'm
not exactly sure of what they do.

To be honest, I do not think anybody uses them in real life: they seem
to only be needed by unittest2 (which was written by the same author).
If it's OK with you, I'd rather leave the description as is, rather than
guessing. WDYT?
