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?
