Wow... Python detects "dubious syntax"? And here I thought programming
was rather black and white, it's right or it's wrong.
(He notes examples such as assigning to None and "unqualified exec is
not allowed in function" etc.)
I guess I've never accidentally hit one of those. Seems like, if I had,
I'd probably want to fix the problem rather than hide it, as with most
warnings from C compilers.
