Some Python tools (in particular I am interested in type checkers) will benefit from knowing where a given expression ends to indicate/highlight location of an error in the source code. Other tools and IDEs may have also some other benefits. Currently such tools need to use some hacks and/or custom parser to find the end line and end column of an expression, while it would be more straightforward to just add this information to every AST node by CPythons own parser.

This will increase memory usage, but expectation is that this effect will be minor.

What do you think?
