Not quite true. Depending on the context, the obvious meanings of "_" in
Python are either
1) "ignore me", e.g. in
_, b = some_tuple
2) "this is a non-public thing", as in
_private = 1
3) "I am the translation function", as commonly used in (HTML) templates:
_("translation key here")
None of the three meanings applies to the OP's example, AFAICT.
