I don't use Python, and I don't know what isort or pyflakes do,
but if they are not extremely complicated we could write Lisp code
to do the job this facility needs.

Putting this feature in a separate package would have two disadvantages:
* It would make Emacs more complex.
* It would discourage users from finding out about the feature.
