Hah. Another argument *against* rebinding by :=, and *for* a nonlocal declaration. With 'nonlocal n, m' in increment() (or however it's spelled :-) the intent is clear.
I dislike := very much. I think it will confuse newbies and thus be abused. While I dislike the global declaration, I don't feel strongly about changing or removing it.
I think ':=' is to close to '='. The default assigment should be much easier to type than the special case. Otherwise I'd have to think about which one I'd like to use every time I type an assigment.
