tokenize seems to be mishandling this line:

        assert 6 .__index__() == 6

Note the space between '6' and '.'.

I'm guessing that the untokenization of this somehow drops the space;
this seems to be a bug in untokenize() which probably should add a

I'll check this in.

Then there's another (shallow) problem that only occurs when I run
