Kei: The documentation does not say that quit() returns a value, so the
current behavior is correct.  However, SMTP defines a return value for
QUIT, so there is a case for smtplib.quit() returning that value.

This patch does need a documentation change to Doc/library/smtplib.rst

Guido: You wrote and last touched this code, any objections?
