I had an idea of using Pylint messages for the real-time warnings (the
yellow squiggly lines). PyLint seems to support a much larger set of
error, warning, etc. detection than Wing's internal engine. It'd be
neat to use PyLint to drive the highlighting. It's quite configurable
as well - I've found it easy to turn off the annoying warnings.
I catch potential mistakes even before writing unittests using
PyLint. On the whole, it's a nice complement to Wing's autocompletion
& nose for producing quality python code. Tighter integration in Wing
in any former would be a huge plus.
