I see a lot of vague "but what if there's something else", and not a
lot of concrete "here's a use of annotations that would be locked
out". Does anyone actually have another use case that would be
seriously harmed by this kind of conflict? Remember, you can simply
not use type hints for the function(s) that use other annotations; the
conflict is only if you're trying to use both on the same function.
