comprehensions.  I don't think you read any of the messages.  about 1000
were solely about comprehensions.

How about every example brought up in 1300+ messages that assignment
expressions could handle that otherwise required far more code?  Some
including imports?

Did you miss where _every_ counter example was either doing what assignment
expressions do with more code, or where outright misunderstandings of how
they will work?  Did you read Chris' responses where he clearly refused
each example?

 Really hard to see how you got that take away if you read those messages.
Basically you are not backed up at all by citing that.

assignment expressions handle many cases with ONE syntax.  They are the
"one way to do it" where "it" covers every example brought up so far.
