I don't see any mesage from pylint in your email, could you post it again?
Regardless, I think what you're disagreeing with is the language specification. The documentation specifies that the `else` is only triggered on breaks: http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/controlflow.html#break-and-continue-statem...

often I write code like this:
def _areConstants(expressions): for expression in expressions: if not expression.isExpressionConstantRef(): return False
if expression.isMutable(): return False else: return True
That is to search in an iterable, and return based on finding something, or returning in the alternative, I specifically prefer the "else:" branch over merely putting it after the "for" loop.
This triggers the above message, which I consider flawed, because as soon as there is a "raise", or "return", that should be good enough as well. Basically any aborting statement, not only break.
I wanted to hear your opinion on this, pylint bug, or only in my mind.
