[New-bugs-announce] [issue14167] document return statement in finally blocks

New submission from Yury Selivanov <yselivanov at gmail.com>:

I think that the documentation should put more emphasis on the `return` statement in a `finally` block.

Example:

  def test():
      try:
          1/0
      finally:
          return 10

  >>> test()
  10

I think we need to add a warning, or at least a note, that 'return' masks exceptions, if any occurred.
