Among them is this one:

    Incorrect LOAD/STORE_GLOBAL generation

The question is, what behaviour is preferable for this code:

    g = 1
    def f():
        g += 1


Should this raise an UnboundLocalError or should it increment g?

(Or, in other words, should augmented assignment be considered
a local binding like regular assignment, or not?)
