I wish you'd annotate this code sample, what do you intend it to

It probably shows the original complaint even more strongly. As for being a
problem with the suggested solution, I suppose you're right, although it
doesn't make it much different. Still, before a *possible* assignment to
'x', it should be loaded as LOAD_NAME since it was surely not bound as
local, yet.
