Just to help the rest of us preserve our sanity, I recommend not assigning 
to str, since that overrides the builtin str().

Having run this example without thinking about that fact cost me a few 
minutes of debugging since I was running code of mine that uses str() after 
testing the example.

>str = """
>def foo():
>     print 'hello'
>       error
