   This is The Reason Number Two - there have to be a balance between what
features are accepted in the language and what are rejected. Python
developers decided that anonymous code blocks are allowed in a few special
places and are forbidden generally.
   IWBN to have a PEP listing all pro et contra arguments so we don't
need to repeat the same arguments over and over.
