[Python-ideas] relaxing keyword usage restrictions

As someone pointed out, I think PEP 342 (coroutines via enhanced generators)
anyway kills this proposal since it is currently possible to do something
val = yield
where yield is a keyword.

If I do:
__builtins__.exit = os._exit = os.kill = sys.exit = lambda *args: False

is there a way to programmatically exit?
