It depends. If you really wanted to as in the Python zone, then you should know that this is the function prototype written in the C or C++ language. Python does not like that.

For example, Python usually does not use semicolons.  It does not use types bound to the arguments. It uses the star in arguments for completely different purpose, etc. ;)
