That didn't get rid of keys. I think you meant to say "del keys". But
it's still more typing -- I think I shouldn't have to bother explicitly
naming (and clearing up after!) my temporary variables any more than I
should have to translate
a = 1 + 2 * 3
temp1 = 2 * 3
temp2 = 1 + temp1
a = temp2
-- the compiler should do that for me.
