@Chris Robert sorry what i meant in saying that " a_variable = an_expression" is that, it seems to me, at least, the only allowed statements are ones where a variable is set to a value, which includes "class" and "def" (and some control flow, if, else etc.)

I'm considering the following extension to Python's grammar: adding the
'where' keyword, which would work as follows:
where_expr : expr 'where' NAME '=' expr

Do we just disallow return inside a given? If so, how would the parser know to allow you to do a def inside a given?
i think so because unless i am misunderstanding something the only
expressions in a 'given' block would be of the type: a_variable = an_expression
Incorrect. Yes, you are misunderstanding:

i would use as because this whole where clause acts very similarly to a context manager in that it sets a variable to a value for a small block
No, the idea is for the indented suite to be a perfectly normal suite of Python code. We want to be able to define functions, classes, etc in there. Inventing a new mini-language specifically for these clauses would be a bad idea (and make them unnecessarily hard to understand)
