Guido van Rossum <guido at python.org> added the comment:
PEP 8 intentionally allows users to choose whether to put the operator at the start or end of the line (as long as they're consistent within a file or project). This is to avoid a barrage of "style fixes" that are just noise.
But PEP 7 is only for CPython's own C code style, and here I don't want things to change. When it comes to readability of our code surely there are bigger fish to fry.
So I'm closing this as won't fix.
resolution: -> wont fix
stage: -> resolved
status: open -> closed
