'tainting'? I don't see how I'm corrupting Python. Moshe's example
follows what I want, which is
editWin = CreateWindow()
editwin = editWin.WithToolBar()
to give me a clear error message:
line 2: "editwin" is an incorrect capitalisation of "editWin",
preferrably with a red underline under the 'w' and 'W'
