You don't even need to give a formal patch. Just write the doc change in 
plain text and submit it as a bug.

Usually the exceptions that can be raised by a function are *not* 

IMO what is missing from the docs is the ability to provide a full path 
to webbrowser.get(). All of these are valid arguments, and they all have 
a different meaning:

get('/path/to/firefox %s')
get('/path/to/firefox %s &')

The docs only cover the first one.
