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.

[Corion]: Hurr. Yesterday I played around with ffmpeg as a new toy and found its "scene" filter great - it detects scene changes. Now I could write a module that splits a given video on its cuts into different scenes. Except I have no use case for that :)
[Corion]: (and also, writing yet another FFmpeg module just to wrap system() and grep through its output isn't all that great ...)
[erix]: cut out advertisements from movies? :)
[erix]: robably not possible (or it would have been done already)
[Corion]: erix: Oooh - yeah, that would be a good application of this, true (except that I don't consume movies-with- separate- advertisements that much nowadays :) )
[erix]: yes, it's old annoyance :)
[Corion]: erix: I think it's basically quite possible through a variety of means - change in audio level (advertisements are usually louder), common "advertisement starting" blocks, fade in/out of TV logo
