I think python is expecting a octet number from the input?

  Hello

  Ive recently found that you cannot type anything over 7 into a number that is preceded with a 0.
  ex:
       >>> 01
      1
      >>> 07
      7
      >>> 08
      SyntaxError: invalid token
      >>> 011
      9
      >>> 017
      15
      >>> 077
      63
      >>> 078
      SyntaxError: invalid token

  I know this isnt that big of a problem,
  but i cannot think of one reason why they would not allow numbers preceded with a 0 to have a number
  higher then a 7 in them...
  And it seems very inconsistant to me...

  Is there a reason for this?

  Thanks
  Peter
