What we're debating here is a micro-cosm of the broader "documentation philosophy" questions that I'm hoping the Documentation WG can iron out.  

What is "obvious"? Is it obvious that print returns None when file.write does not? Why does "exec" explicitly say it returns None, and no beginners were harmed, but having "print" say it returns None would be bad?
