In my opinion, there is *NO CHANCE* that any developer would
voluntarily add th index stuff in this example isn't it
redundant? A text parsing tool that knows the syntax of
Python can work out that foo is a function. There is no need
for a programmer to spell it out in a second
syntactic form right?
