The biggest problem with converting runtime errors to compile time
errors is that it means affected dead code goes from being a
readability & maintainability problem to "Python X.Y breaks my
SyntaxWarning splits the difference nicely, since the compiler
complains about the same dead code that would confuse a human reader,
but also ignores it and moves on.
