As Serhiy's examples show, the ambiguities this introduces get confusing fast. A more constrained version that (for example) permitted only name references for the callable could resolve that, but it's probably still a bad idea. Still, interesting to know it is *technically* possible, if anyone decides to pursue it further :)

The "silently ignores bare print statements" aspect isn't new - Python 3 already behaves that way, since a print on its own line now just references the builtin without calling it.
