[New-bugs-announce] [issue30402] Unexpected and/or inconsistent del behavior
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Dan Snider:
k = 'k'
That deletes the variable k from the local scope (even though it *looks* like it's trying to delete a list containing 1 element which is equivalent to the variable k).
But if using list literals to delete groups of objects is valid, then why not set literals?
raises SyntaxError: can't delete literal
The better option imo would be to only allow tuples when del-ing groups of objects, but if list literals are allowed then set literals should be as well.
