try/except/finally


Ok; this is a bit esoteric.

So finally is executed regardless of whether an exception occurs, so states the docs.

But, I thought, if I <return> from my function first, that should take precedence.

au contraire

Turns out that if you do this:

try:
  failingthing()
except FailException:
  return 0
finally:
  return 1

Then finally really is executed regardless... even though you told it to return.

That seems odd to me.
