I submitted a patch to the tracker, see http://bugs.python.org/issue16795.
The patch only contains the very minimum set of changes which are
necessary. There's still a few things you'll need to work around when
writing a static language analyzer, but none of them is too much work,
so I didn't include them for now in order to keep things compact.

Thanks and best regards,
