Gee, the time machine again!

Lots of proposals on c.l.py base on the introduction of "expression
suites", that is, suites embedded in arbitrary expressions. My opinion
is that one will never find a suitable (;-) syntax, there's always the
question of where to put the code that follows the suite (and is part
of the same statement).
