interesting idea, but Python won't discover inconsistencies.  if only
an Emacs solution is sought, a "# end" convention is preferable since
it's more explicit.  an explicit convention that Python recognises
would be even better.

I don't expect everybody to use it.  miscellaneous projects where the
developers are comfortable with it might want to add it to their
coding standards.
