Well, I do it a lot too; don't know if that makes it good or bad, though. :)
I personally don't see a lot of benefit to changing the lexical rules for
Py3K, however. The hard part of lexing Python is INDENT/DEDENT (and the
associated unbalanced parens rule), and none of these proposals suggest
removing *that*. Overall, this whole thing seems like a bikeshed to me.
