This issue arose as we were making changes to the 'pandas' library. I am not sure if this is a bug or feature, but it definitely did not cross anyone's minds when discussing the PR at hand. I have attached a code sample to illustrate the "bug" that I have run successfully on Python 2.7 and Python 3.4.

Google indicates that this is indeed a feature of the language. Sorry about that! I guess that was a miscommunication on the PR-end.
