Now that Python has type annotations has there been any thought into having access protection annotations. This would be for same reason as type annotations: to give the linter the opportunity to catch bugs early, and to give the programmer a uniform way to specify invariants.
Unlike type annotations, this wouldn't need any new syntax, but it should be well thought-out. My rough idea is to have some decorator on methods and properties describing who is allowed to call those methods and access those properties. The allowed caller list could be things base classes. I think this would need to be better thought-out, but something like this would be really useful for me as it's hard to keep track of who is allowed to call what. Best, Neil
