Unless x=AutomataBranch() is something that is expensive. And to be honest:
changing code (possibly introducing bugs!!!) to work around short-comings
in either your IDE or your way you insist to work strikes me as odd.

I understand the desire to have autocompletion. But it's not *that*
important. Maybe fabrio (who's maintaining the PyDev-eclipse-plugin) could
be asked to add something like this:


to the plugin - so that when pydev reads that comment, it has a hint on what
to use for autocompletion.
