Hmmm, I just also noticed what I think is a bug in the docs
(https://docs.python.org/2/library/threading.html).  It says, "If a call
with blocking set to True would block, return False immediately".  Isn't
that backwards?  Doesn't that describe the blocking=False behavior?


If you mean this text under Lock.acquire:

When invoked with the blocking argument set to False, do not block. If a call with blocking set to True would block, return False immediately; otherwise, set the lock to locked and return True.

that pretty clearly (to me) describes blocking=False, by contrasting it with a behaviour that would obtain if blocking=True. It is in the clause describing "the blocking argument set to False", after all.
