PEP 3099 is the big list of things that will not happen in Python 3.
Everything on that list is still true, 12 years after it was posted.

"There will be no alternative binding operators such as :=."

While earlier versions of PEP 572 avoided breaking this declaration, the
current version does not.  Now, this isn't a major issue or anything - if
572 is accepted, that section of 3099 would just need a note added (or just
be removed).  I don't want this message to impact the fate of 572.
