What it does#

Checks for the use of too many expressions in starred assignment statements.

In assignment statements, starred expressions can be used to unpack iterables.

In Python 3, no more than 1 << 8 assignments are allowed before a starred expression, and no more than 1 << 24 expressions are allowed after a starred expression.
