[Python-Dev] Python syntax checker ?

Would it be possible to write a Python syntax checker that doesn't
stop processing at the first error it finds but instead tries
to continue as far as possible (much like make -k) ?

If yes, could the existing Python parser/compiler be reused for
such a tool ?

I was asked to write a tool which checks Python code and returns
a list of found errors (syntax error and possibly even some
lint warnings) instead of stopping at the first error it finds.

Thanks for any tips,
