Why would you want that? At the end of the statement2 line, how is
python-mode supposed to know you want to autoindent to the _first_ for
loop, not the second? There is no way for it to know.
Note that it _does_ detect cases where statement2 is a return or a
raise; in those cases it can rightly deduce that you're done with the
block and autointent to the lower level. But it can't in general; only
you know that, and that's why you have to hit the backspace key.
