I quite agree. I hate random punctuation.

Suppose hypothetically that cocall is just one of a class of execution
modifiers that we might ultimately want to add. In that case maybe there's a
syntax (analogous to adding decorator syntax) that doesn't require new
keywords. There's yield, yield from and cocall. Are there more?

(I don't know. I'm just wondering.)
