New submission from Jonathan Fine <jfine2358 at gmail.com>:

See https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/functions.html#eval
This says the following won't happen. But it does.

Python 3.6.2 (default, Jul 29 2017, 00:00:00) 
[GCC 4.8.4] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> def fn(): print(3); return 4
>>> eval(fn.__code__)

Compare with https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/functions.html#exec
