Allowing it in arbitrary expressions has been ruled out on
the grounds that the difference between "with x as y:" and
"with (x as y):" would be too subtle.
But that argument doesn't apply if "as" becomes part of the
syntax of "if" and "while". Do we think that's a bad idea
From the survey of other modern languages that was just
posted, it seems we'd be in good company if adopted something
