I suppose that's a valid concern, especially regarding assignments,
because the code typically would still run. But in the beginning of
the line, it is usually quite easy to see if there's a dot or not,
assuming a fixed-width font and proper indenting.

Anyway, it seems to me this would make sense in with statements:

with open(filename):
    #do stuff
    #do more stuff
