What's wrong about the warning? It's there to prevent the common pitfall of expecting things like this to work right:
print (stat)[9];
His point was the warning cares about exactly one space. Why it shouldn't it give the same warning for these also?
print(stat)[9] print (stat)[9]
is obtuse. I'm sure there are a hundred root nodes on this site alone about abuse of white space, so I'll defer to them.
