the remaining problem would be to pick a suitable KEYW-TO-BE
Someone, I believe, suggested reusing "def" - this might be nice, but IIRC it won't work because of the grammar's strict lookahead limits. (If it does work, then "def" looks good to me).
I think you can left factor it so it works
func :: func_start func_middle ':' func_start :: "def" NAME func_middle :: '(' arglist ')' func_middle :: NAME '(' testlist ')'
If def won't work, how about "define"? The construct is sort of an extended form of def. Or is that too cute?
It's a new keyword.
By the way, can I just say that I am +1 on Michael Hudson's original patch for [...] on definitions. Even though it doesn't solve the issue of properties, I think it's a nice solution for classmethod and staticmethod, and again I like the generality.
Yes, I do think this patch is in danger of being forgotten...
