On a typical Linux system, if you run 'chattr +i /home/user/.python_history', and then run python, then exit, the following error message will be printed out:
Error in atexit._run_exitfuncs:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.9/site.py", line 446, in write_history
    readline.write_history_file(history)
OSError: [Errno -1] Unknown error -1


With a simple improvement, the site module can check and suggest the user to run 'chattr -i' on the .python_history file.

Additionaly, I don't know if it's a good idea to automatically run 'chattr -i' in such a situation or not.
