[Python-Dev] Exception message for invalid with statement usage

Current trunk:

>>> with 1:
...  print "1"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute '__exit__'

Isn't that a bit crude? For "for i in 1" there's a better
error message, so why shouldn't the above give a
TypeError: 'int' object is not a context manager
