[Twisted-Python] async returns from DefaultAuthorizer.addIdentity

Authorizer.addCallback's documentation says "Create an identity and make
a callback when it has been created."  So I figured that meant I should
have DefaultAuthorizer return a defer.succeed/fail instead of
None/raise.  But returning a defer.fail makes
test_cred.AuthorizerTestCase.test_addIdent fail, as it has an
assertRaises in there.

So who is wrong?  The documentation, my interpretation of the
documentation, or the unit test?
