I'm *not* saying that I like := (so far I still like 'global x in f' better)
if I understand 'global x in f' will introduce a local x in f even if there is none, for symmetry with global. Maybe this has already been answered (this thread is getting too long, and is this change scheduled for 2.4 or 3.0?) but
x = 'global'
def f(): def init(): global x in f x = 'in f' init() print x
will this print 'global' or 'in f' ? I can argument both ways which is not a good thing.
