pychecker does "see" all code at the module level, but it isn't perfect.
If there is code like:

	import sys
	if sys.platform == 'win32':
		def x(a, b): pass
		def x(a): pass

The following incorrect warning is produced:
	t2.py:5: Redefining attribute (x) original line (3)

Because both versions of the function x() are seen.
