That would indeed fix this problem, but there are other examples. Here
is one: some people tend to write "if a = 1 and a = 2" when they mean
"if a = 1 and if a = 2", which of course should be written as "if a = 1
or a = 2". Of course a real programmer would never make such a
mistake:-) but not everyone is a programmer (yet).
