[Python-ideas] In-place assignment for "boolean or"?

Hi,

I find a common idiom in Python is:

x = x or 'some other value'

This is highly reminiscent of the problem inplace operators solve.

Would it be a good idea to consider an inplace operator for this, perhaps:

x or= 'some other value'

?

Thanks,

Cammil
