I wasn't aware the interpreter was already able to parse PEP 484. Thank 
you. Strike that phrase of that paragraph.

But what a royal mess!

Looking at PEP 3107, i'm left wondering: what if I have for instance 
already annotated my functions for parameter marshalling, following the 
syntax expected of that specific library, and now I want to annotate 
them for type hinting for the purposes of static analysis?
