I just discovered at and consequently removed some style issues from a patch I submitted that I wouldn't have seen otherwise (whitespace and trailing semi-colons). Perhaps more experienced Python devs are familiar with this or similar tools but I thought it might not be a bad idea to point to it in the docs. I just added the text
