About that one, it always saddened me a little bit that I may not write:

        if x in 1, 2, 3:
	    pass

while I can write:

        for x in 1, 2, 3:
            pass

In the first, I write the parentheses so it gets accepted, but I would
prefer not using them.  It breaks some of the symmetry, in my opinion :-).
