In cpython/Lib/test/, there is a function:
1 def no_pop_blocks():
2    y = 1
3    while not y:
4        bla
5    x = 1

what does bla mean? bla is not defined anywhere. But the function can pass the compilation. bla is treated as a global name in symtable during compilation. Why does python allow this statement (line 4)? Will line 4 be deleted in the future? Or be replaced with pass?

y = 1, so the body of the while loop will never execute and the name will never need to be resolved.

The bug tracker is not an appropriate place to ask questions about the code, it is for reporting bugs in python.
