[New-bugs-announce] [issue20769] Reload() description is unclear

Roy Smith report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Roy Smith:

http://docs.python.org/2/library/functions.html#reload says:

It is legal though generally not very useful to reload built-in or dynamically loaded modules, except for sys, __main__ and __builtin__.

It is unclear what the "except for ..." part is referring to.  Is it not legal to reload those modules?  Or is it not very useful to reload them?
