I love given, but that's the one thing I don't like. I prefer this:
if (diff and g > 1
given diff = x - x_base
given g = gcd(diff, n)):
—just like for and if subexpressions. Doing this can also open up
weirdness if someone tries to roll something like:
a = f(), # Make a tuple of length 1
into a given statement. Now, where do you up the parentheses?
a = (f(),),
b = whatever?
