Um, how do you see those two differ? Is 'if' a keyword in the same
sense as 'or', or in a different sense?

I realize that in Python 2.5, None is not a full-fledged keyword but
cannot be used as an assignment target. But that's only transitional.
In 3.0 I imagine it becoming a keyword in the grammar (whose only
appearance would be as one of the alternatives for 'atom'). And we're
talking 3.0 here.
