Stefan Behnel report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Stefan Behnel <stefan_ml at behnel.de>:

The documentation of the PyContextVar C-API is unclear in a couple of places.

- It's not clear whether PyContextVar_Get() always returns an owned reference also for default values or only if a value was found.
- It's not explicit that "optional" actually means "pass an object reference or NULL".
- The return value of PyContextVar_Set() is not explained.
