>> This is certainly not something that requires language support. It can easily be purely a convention, as long as different IDEs, linters, type checkers, etc. agree on what the convention is. Maybe at some point in the future, if the convention becomes adopted, there might be some help in having a standard library module, or even minimal language recognition, of the convention. But let's work on adopting a convention first.

Might not even be a convention. I have now tried using https://github.com/edreamleo/make-stub-files <https://github.com/edreamleo/make-stub-files> on the code base at work. I had to fix some fatal bugs, and it's still pretty buggy even after those fixes, AND PyCharm has some nasty bugs with stub files that are blockers, but it's clear that generating stub files to do this is feasible.
