This is a good summary of the choices.  I think the second one is a good 
compromise.  More elegant, yet avoiding the problems with assignment-expressions

It is true that := handles more (perhaps less-common) use cases, but 
subjectively it is not as "Pythonic."  Also doesn't appear to be the direction 
the surveyed languages are going.
