[docs] [issue15233] atexit: guarantee order of execution of registered functions?

Georg Brandl report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Georg Brandl <georg at python.org>:

Currently, the atexit docs state

"The order in which the functions are called is not defined" in the introduction and

"all functions registered are called in last in, first out order" in the docs of the atexit() function.

While the latter is correct, I don't think we should guarantee that behaviour by documenting it.  Suggestions?
