I love some of the constructs of python like list comprehension but  
yes the new "if" construct don't strike me as a nice adition. And  
maybe your solution is a good one, but I will have to see it working.  
If you want to alter pypy to do it you will probably have to improve  
the parser generator that is being used right now, but you can also  
try to do it on ironpython or jython.
