I just saw that Boo supports both print as a function and as a


So I had the Idea of adding an language option to IronPython which
allows both syntaxes (and probably emitting a warning when using the old
one). This could help in the transition of old scripts to IronPython 3.


I know that the cPython parser does not allow that (using the same word
as keyword and identifier), but maybe the IronPython parser is flexible
enough to allow both usages?


Just a weird, heretical suggestion, feel free to ignore my mail. J
