Docs and code disagree on return type of Users.get_all_permissions()

While implementing an authentication backend, I noticed that the documentation for get_all_permissions() (http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/auth/#django.contrib.auth.models.User.get_all_permissions) claims "Return a list", but the backend wrapper in django/contrib/auth/models.py:149, _user_get_all_permissions(), creates and returns a set instead of a list. This causes one of our internal unit tests to fail.
A set makes good sense here, but the documentation and code are in conflict with each other. Could I get a resolution?
(Patch not attached since I have no preference as to the actual fix.)
