[New-bugs-announce] [issue13610] On Python parsing numbers.

New submission from Jean-Michel Fauth <wxjmfauth at gmail.com>:

Can this be fixed? As far as I can remember (ver. 1.5.6),
it has always existed. Python does not crash, I find it
inelegant. Should it not be a SyntaxError?

Side effect. Searching for keywords, (eg. with re, "\b") may
practically always implies to handle this case separately.

Python all versions.
