Thiat in fact happens to me all the time and is an annoying aspect of
Python.  If I forget to declare several variables in C, the compiler
gives me several warning messages and I fix them in one edit.  If I
forget to initialize several variables in Python, I need a separate
test-edit cycle to hit the runtime error for each one.
