R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:
The precisionist in me insists that at a minimum 'will' should be changed
to 'may'. Otherwise either the docs are lying or the implementation
has a bug.
Or perhaps we could add a footnote about the intentionally divergent
behavior of the CPython implementation?
(As Terry pointed out these docs may be used by other implementors as a
prescriptive guide, just as the language reference is.)
