I think it is important to have simple and consistent set of rules and 
as such I reconsidered my comment and say that for the sake of 
completeness to allow something like:


(or take an example with +), which follows this rule should be 
supported, even if that means supporting

import fooo.

or the example with --. I think it should not necessarily be our task to 
prevent people from writing ugly looking code. For that I would like to 
have a secondary tool.

Thank you for reminding.

bye Jochen
