Aye, while I still don't want comprehensions to implicitly create new
locals in their parent scope, I've come around on the utility of letting
inline assignment targets be implicitly nonlocal references to the nearest

I think the parens would technically be optional (as in PEP 572), since
"EXPR for" isn't legal syntax outside parentheses/brackets/braces, so the
parser would terminate the assignment expression when it sees the "for"
