One way is using a code checker like PyChecker[1]. This neat software  
for finding bugs will check for lots of other pitfalls too, but you  
can filter it down to what you need if you're only interested in this  

I don't use an IDE, but this would seem like something for an IDE[2]  
to support if you're into that kind of magic.
