[erlang-bugs] sets man page talking about ordered sets

The sets man page mentions ordered sets in several places, e.g.

"sets:from_list(List) -> Set


List = [term()]
Set = set()

Returns an ordered set of the elements in List. "

But in the introduction states that the representation is undefined,
and a simple test shows that the sets are not ordered (at least not
recognizably so).
