[Is the name of "sarkkasm" (sarkkism ?) the one obvious way to make your remark escape appropriate qualification as...]
But please be precise, are you saying
(1) that it is inane to suggest that <code> x=f(x) </code> has enough in common with say <code> x=x%n </code> that special syntax paralleling the latter's shorthand <code> x%=n </code> could or would make sense for the former ?
(2) that the proposed choice of special syntax is "most inane".
In case you mean only (2), please back your claim with some facts, by proposing "less inane" special syntax.
