def f(x):a[x]=x


Some like to think of []= as a form of augmented assignment

Currently, []= doesn't align with other augmenteds on this point

That doesn't seem very consistent. Add on that augmented
assignment is the only globalizing store statement which also
dereferences, and consistency doesn't seem to be a strong point
against this proposal
