Hello @bers,

Thank you for your suggestion! To be honest, this is not something that was on our radar, as we generally try to focus on finding actual code issues rather than act purely as a type-checker.

However, seeing that this feature seems widely supported, I think it makes sense for us to consider it as well. I created the following ticket which we’ll discuss internally.
