which only works if 1) you're using a Python implementation that supports
those attributes, 2) the source code is available, 3) the expression is written
on a single line, and 4) you don't use confusing comments after the function
call (and probably some more things I cannot think of right now).

perfectly valid Python constructs like



    out(temp) # XXX: should use gettemp() instead

breaks the function.
