I just realized (after being prompted by the makers of BBEdit, a 
very fine programmers editor for the Mac) that Python doesn't 
appear to have a "check syntax only" switch, like Perl and other 
languages do have. They'd like to have this, for (you guessed 
it) their "check syntax" command.

Is there a roundabout way to do this? And, if there isn't, is it 
okay if I have a look at adding one? Suggestions for a switch
