I'm really asking whether it's technically feasible and realistically possible
for them to do so.  I'd love to hear from the maintainers of pyflakes, pylint,
Emacs, vim, and other editors, linters, and other static analyzers on a rough
technical assessment of whether they can support this and how much work it
would be.
