[New-bugs-announce] [issue11499] reassignment to bool is left in the file

New submission from Jason R. Coombs <jaraco at jaraco.com>:

Consider the Python file

    True = 1
    False = 0

The 2to3 script returns an empty diff for this file.

These lines (especially when the values are canonical), are clearly for backward compatibility to early Python 2.x editions (2.2.1 and earlier).

These statements cause an error in Python 3. It would be nice if 2to3 could either remove these lines or log a warning.
