[docs] [issue37563] Documentation - default for StreamHandler

Jonathan report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Jonathan <bugreports at lightpear.com>:


Both say:

"""class logging.StreamHandler(stream=None)

Returns a new instance of the StreamHandler class. If stream is specified, the instance will use it for logging output; otherwise, sys.stderr will be used."""

Surely that means from an user perspective that the default is actually `sys.stderr`, not `None`?
