More positive note - finding tabnanny.py. Never understood what it was
and why it was there before.
But when I find myself putting print statements into tokenize.py library
code, I just sense - having been around a while - that Python doesn't
want me to be resorting to this and probably has a battery included that
is more appropriate. Which is when I backed off and found tabnanny.
