Code review is precisely the sort of time when a linter should be run on
the code to try to flag potential problems like this.  Sure it will flag
things that don't really matter, but you can ignore those.

Additionally using the type annotations that are now a part of Python
(3) will help the linter be even more useful to you in this scenario.

Until you forget to flag one sometime.  Or end up flagging every
variable, which takes us back around to type annotations and linters.

So no, the answer is probably still, use a linter.
