<> vs != was Re: A Suggestion for Python Colon Syntax

I prefer <> over != for not equal. 

That's probably because I used Pascal and Pascal-like languages for a 
long time before subjecting myself to C.

I'd prefer still to be using Pascal over C, but the C crowd has captured 
the world.

 (For that matter, I prefer "not equal" and "is not equal" over != for 
not equal.)

Others feel differently about the matter...I won't try to convert you 
unless you try to convert me.  ;-)
