I.e. PEP 325.

But (as I explained, and you agree) that still doesn't render PEP 310
unnecessary, because abusing the for-loop for implied cleanup
semantics is ugly and expensive, and would change generator semantics;
and it bugs me that the finally clause's reachability depends on the
destructor executing.
