The matter had been discussed (and not once...), IMO without 
satisfactory conclusion -- see:

* http://bugs.python.org/issue612627 (the feature added)
* http://bugs.python.org/issue1214889 (another feature rejected)
* http://bugs.python.org/issue1099364 (problems reported)
* http://bugs.python.org/issue967986 (problems reported)
* http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2008-December/693601.html
* http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2008-December/084362.html
* and probably in many other places...

Anyway, it's definitely a bug -- either in the language/implementation 
or in the documentation.
