I really don't know, but the real question is: why?
What are you trying to accomplish?

Know that "assignment-as-expression" is a recurrent theme which
regularly gets shot down, because the language does not support
it, nor will it in the forseeable future.

Programming "C/C++ in Python" is frustrating, what with lack of
pointers and other bug-engendering paraphernalia, maybe programming
Python in Python will be much more rewarding.
