[Python-ideas] Inline assignments using "given" clauses

I agree it would be useful to have new keywords without being reserved, and
we could even go with mechanism like infix operators created by user.

It would allow things like [given for x in range(5) given given = x+1] or
even [given for given in range(given) given given = given + 1] haha, but as
other pointed out, it would be called Bad practice ^^

By the way, I still prefer "where" to "given".
