Binding expressions are debugger-friendly in that they _don't_ just vanish without a trace. It's their purpose to _capture_ the values of the expressions they name. Indeed, you may want to add them all over the place inside expressions, never intending to use the names, just so that you can see otherwise-ephemeral intra-expression results in your debugger ;-)
That's a fantastic point and I'm surprised nobody has thought of it until now (that I've seen).
Chris, if you're still reading this and aren't yet heartedly sick and tired of the PEP wink this ought to go in as another motivating point.
Yay, that's like a dream, really fantastic.

I was actually a bit reluctant about "yet another way to prove Python no longer simple" and now even that Pascal-ish look! :-)
But this argument has completely sold me. Marvellous!
