New submission from R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com>:

The title pretty much says it all.  I believe the behavior is correct (more useful than returning an object that is only useful for obtaining the name) even though it is unusual for context managers.  In any case there is plenty of code using the existing behavior, so I think this is a doc bug.
