This doesn't really need special syntax.  I would much rather have this (or
something like it) as a way of spelling initialized local variables.  That
is, when I want static local variables, instead of corrupting the function
signature by writing:

def f(x, marker=[], foo=foo)

...I could write:

def f(x) having (marker=[], foo)
