These do exist, examples include pylint, pyflakes and pychecker.  It
might be nice to integrate running these into the %check of certain
python modules, though achieving a useful signal:noise ratio can require
careful configuration.

Having said that, static checking wouldn't have detected this specific
problem; it was a weird one-off (I hope) relating to how anaconda only
pulls in a subset of packaged files into the install.img
