New submission from Floris Bruynooghe <floris.bruynooghe at gmail.com>:

The description of how to best use exceptions is slightly confusing and led me to believe there was an issue when using open() as a context manager.  The main issue is that the wording seems to suggest the example above it is the best and not the very last.

Attached is a patch which uses a slightly different wording which IMHO makes it clearer that the with-statement is the preferred method and does not introduce subtle bugs.
