It's a strong source for bugs, especially for newbies, that I have
hoped to see removed from Python3 (my first request of this was years
ago). I was nearly sure to see this wart removed from Python3, and now
I hear it's presents still. I don't understand why they haven't fixed
it.

Then this is the third thing I don't like of Python3 (the other two
being the removal of automatic tuple unpacking in function signature
and the wart of literals for empty set/dict).

Bye,
bearophile
