That was the intent of my suggested doc rewording -- file controls 
flushing unless flush=True is given. What I wrote on the issue was a 
first try and I suspect that there are other and perhaps better concise 
wordings. Post one on the issue if you have one. (But writing in 'doc 
style' is not always easy ;-).
