This is true by design, but not presently able to be expressed in the
type system. An assertion helps mypy understand our constraints.

I'm curious: do you need the local variable to make the assertion stick?

No, but it only sticks to the binding and not the data. i.e. assertions 
to downcast work on the *name*.

(This comes up somewhere in the schema.py patches where I make a change 
that looks completely pointless, but it makes mypy happy.)

I could have left it alone. I just saw a lot of repeated multi-dots and 
habitually created a temporary local for the purpose.

Would it stick to variants.tag_member, too?

I'm asking to learn, not to find a reason to make you change your patch.

Matter of taste.  Long chains of dots make the code hard to read because
they are so long.  Temporary variable make it hard to read because you
have to remember what they mean.  Tradeoff.  I come up with cases I find
hard to decide all too often.

In case the local variable isn't needed for mypy: when you throw in
something that isn't needed for the patch's stated purpose, it's best to
mention it in the commit message, because not mentioning it is a review
comment magnet :)

Put yourself in the reviewers shoes.  Your lovingly crafted commit
message puts him into a positive mood.  He nods along while reading your
obvious patch at a good pace.  And then he runs smack into the
unexpected unrelated part, and stops: oh, what's going on here?  Back up
some and read more slowly to make sure I understand.

As long as variants isn't re-bound in that scope, it should stick within 
that scope, yeah. (I think. Didn't test. It's my expectation.)

Yeah, understood. Well, part of it is knowing the review style of your 
reviewer too. It's been a while since we've personally swapped patches.

The actual process for much of this was: "There is an error! let me fix 
that error."

And then I do that, but I do so using idioms and patterns I'm familiar 
or comfortable with. And then post-hoc, not 100% of them were 
necessarily required, strictly, to fix the problem. Most of this series 
was written "one file at a time", and then split out post-fact into 
little per-warning changes.

I didn't even send part 1 until I finished typing the *entire* package, 
to make sure that things were as correct as possible from the very first 
commit.

I often don't really even notice that little changes aren't strictly 
necessary until they're challenged, it's usually not a conscious choice 
to try and sneak stuff in.

Still always trying to find a balance between "Easy to maintain and 
iterate" and "easy to review." Tough line for me.
