I'm surprised that no one has mentioned it yet, so as a quick datapoint: Go also uses := for assignment, so there's some precedent.
It's irrelevant, because Go's solution for inline assignment is entirely different. (And there was no question that := is commonly used for assignment -- just look it up on Wikipedia.)
