I doubt that many will ask for those, and I very *seriously* doubt that
Guido would ever allow them. For one thing, "x += 1" is entirely
adequate for incrementing, in the ordinary case. The less ordinary
cases that make them useful in C don't apply in Python, due to it lack
of pointers and its for-loop syntax.
