Skipping the With Statement Body

Boredom & Laziness:

(Note: I’m no longer a fan of this idea. contextlib.ExitStack should provide a way to achieve some of the same benefits programmatically in __enter__ without needing to change the context management protocol, at least as far as resource cleanup goes. It should also make it easier to create context managers that can be combined with an if statement to only execute if the resource is acquired successfully)

Basic concept was to add an optional __entered__ method to the context management protocol that gets executed inside the scope of the try block, so any exceptions it raises are seen by the context managers __exit__ method.
