The same with "with": it could make name-resolving more efficient
by allowing searching some namespaces ahead of locals() and globals()...
For example (I prefer "in" instead of "with", 'cause its a
keyword already and thus no problem adding it):
a = split("1 2 3 4 45 5 6")
l = join(a, ":")
(string is only example, I know about string methods).
The big question of course, if a and l will be in
string namespace or in locals() ;-)
Sincerely yours, Roman Suzi
