Currently, yes, but it is absolutely not necessary to be so.
It requires to change the grammar to treat operators
differently. A similar change would allow me to use
def foo(from=1, to=42):
since there is no reason to recognise from as a keyword in
parameter position. Similarily: in
def impossible(self, a, b, c):
self.pass = a
self.continue = b
self.return = c
could quite easily be allowed.
But I'm tired to fight such a proposal again for no result...
