A suggestion: There are enough PyDev-ers who read this list that you
needn't bother talking over there (it will be resented).  If you want
to pursue it farther, either submit an RFE with a fairly thorough
explanation of why this is useful, or write and carry a PEP through
about it.  This suggestion is neither new nor unique (many people
used to other languages suggest it as they come to Python), so you
probably will have to have quite persuasive arguments.
