Pylint also "allows" the name `dummy` without complaining.  That makes it
even clearer and doesn't clash with the meaning of `_` when `gettext` is
used.

It's possible to configure many checks in Pylint.  For this check it's
possible to give a regular expression for names you don't care if they are
unused.
