Select.with_hint() documentation flaw
The documentation for Select.with_hint() method gives two Oracle examples with the "+ " included as the passed text argument, but sqlalchemy generates that part of the hint automatically.
So, contrary to the docs, using
select([mytable]).with_hint(mytable, "+ index(%(name)s ix_mytable)")
SELECT /*+ + index(mytable ix_mytable) */
Docs should remove the leading "+ " in both places.
