IDLE's Shell has treated SyntaxWarnings as errors since 2001.  I don't know if any other IDE's do the same.  Raymond's example did not concern me, as I think not calling known non-callables is preferable.

But not executing literal-with-is code, such as "a = 1; a is 1" and "0 is ''" is wrong.  See msg349431 of #34857 for more discussion of these cases.
