When explaining the usage of keyword arguments on mock.patch:

```
patch() takes arbitrary keyword arguments. These will be passed to the Mock (or new_callable) on construction.
```

default new_callable is MagicMock and it should be mentioned here instead of Mock (even tough MagickMock inherits from it).
