See PEP 3113, which doesn't mention parsing. My understanding is that it
was the introspection problem that drove this.

And on very rare occasions, I really miss this feature.

I migrated a lot of code to Python 3 recently and I really miss this feature in lambdas:

sorted(users, key=lambda u: (u[1].lower(), u[0]))

is IMO much uglier than

sorted(users, key=lambda (id, name): (name.lower(), id))

Yes, that's one place I miss it. Also similar usages with dict.items() key value pairs.
