[Python-Dev] with-statement heads-up

I just realized that there's a bug in the with-statement as currently
checked in. __exit__ is supposed to re-raise the exception if there
was one; if it returns normally, the finally clause is NOT to re-raise
it. The fix is relatively simple (I believe) but requires updating
lots of unit tests. It'll be a while.
