I think that a linter can be very pedantic on such code. My concern is about backward compatibility.

The >else"#fca"< code was added 6 years ago (commit 8b95d5e0bf00d9d0098579d29fd6bb9322071879) and nobody complained, it "just worked". If we keep the SyntaxError, random projects will be broken, but I don't see much benefits for the users.

In short, I concur with Guido :-)
