Interesting. I'd definitely prefer that to the C-style inline assignment 
syntax: I think it reads better, and there's less chance of the 
Accidental Assignment Instead Of Comparison trap that has plagued other 

I remain to be convinced that inline assignment is enough of a win in 
general, but if implemented, that's the syntax I'd want.
