Bracketing for a moment what keyword might be used, a thing I like about this syntax is that it can work for multiple names naturally. E.g.
expose Symbol as x, y, z
Or with a different word:
define Typevar as T, S, R
For things like namedtuple that need more arguments, you'd need to use functools.partial to create the single argument callable to match the syntax. On May 31, 2016 8:44 AM, "Steven D'Aprano" email@example.com wrote:

This is bikeshedding a bit, but a keyword that looks good to me:

"expose" sounds like it is taking something hidden or private and exposing it to the public. It doesn't give any hint that it takes the name T and uses it as an argument to Typevar. I would take it as meaning:
take the (possibly internal or private) thing Typevar, and bind it to the name T
with no hint that Typevar was being called.
