Agreed that the documentation and implementation should match. But this seems like a rather low-priority bug. What use case relies on the return value being None?

If there is no immediate need for this change, it might be safer to just make it in 3.6, to minimize compatibility problems. But if it is fixed in 3.5 it should also be fixed in 2.7.

I left some suggestions to simplify the code.
