Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

Given the mention of the posix example, I agree. The issue applies to 2.6 and 3.2 (that I checked) and so I assume to 2.7 and 3.1 also.

There is no doc string for devnull, which I presume should be in ntpath.

>>> help(os.devnull)
no Python documentation found for 'nul'

If this is a singular omission (as opposed to a general lack in that module), you might expand the patch to remedy that also.
