Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] Added syntax-check rule for return with parentheses

After cleanup introduced with previous commit, there is a need for

could match return with cast.

No exception is needed thanks to files excused by default. The
exception is not even needed for python files because 1) when
returning a tuple, you can still omit parentheses around (unless there
is only one value inside, but that's very unusual case),  2) return in
python doesn't need semicolon at the end of statement when there is no
statement following (and statement following 'return' doesn't make

This forces the Python coding style actually, prohibiting one
writes Python codes like:

def test():
    return (1);

def test1():
    return (1,2,3);

regardless of whether coding like this is good or bad, usual or
unsual, they are legal in Python, and we don't say they are not
allowed in HACKING or somewhere else.

Not sure if we should allow this, even we will allow that, we
need to document it somewhere, or more clear and specific for .py
files in halt message.
