Title says it all. Got used to += et al. My mind often expects augmented assignment syntax to exist uniformly for whatever transform.
If I am not mistaken, python syntax doesn't permit augmented assignment operators to sit between parens so that )= wouldn't risk confusing quick machine- or eye-scans to match parens.
Would the statement
( x )= f
represent the ordinary assignment x=f or would it become a syntax error?
Ah, indeed I almost itemized my remark about current python syntax with a (1), to add a "(2) makes closing parens before an augmented assignment (part of) a superfluous construct".
I'd make it a syntax error, to answer your question. I'd be interested in examples out of the "wild".
