fwiw, we're going to need the tool name in any pragma anyways so the existing thing that should be common is:
# tool-name: meaningfultoken
It seems like the only convention that makes sense to me.
When I saw your flake8 example of "# noqa: F401" I wanted to rip my eyes out. Because it didn't mention the tool name *and* it used a numeric code. Tool authors: use descriptive names! Otherwise it is meaningless to anyone reading it. ex:
import rlcompleter # pylint: disable=unused-import
Nobody will ever question _what_ that means.

I suppose that you could have suggest to them that they follow a
- There can be multiple pragmas in a comment, separated by semicolons:
you don't recognise it, skip past the semicolon.
- A pragma can be prefixed with the name of the tool, e.g. "#
F401": if there's a prefix, but it's not yours, skip past the semicolon.
An informational PEP defining a common convention for pragma-style comments could standardise things. I'd suggest starting a discussion (somewhere?) with the development teams for the relevant projects (flake8, mypy, coverage...) with the intention of developing such a PEP that they could all support.
And possibly the easiest way to reach them is on the pyqa-dev mailing list.
