Since the quoted paragraph is distant from where the information about the ``None`` return is documented, the wording of the quoted paragraph can be improved to make this clearer:

Match Objects always have a boolean value of ``True``.  Since ``None`` (which has a boolean value of ``False``) is returned when there is no match, you can test whether there was a match with a simple ``if`` statement.
