All to do with my background-learning by trial and error.   I was simply
trying various ways of assignment.  When one gets long in the tooth read
stuff tends to evaporate.  Got to Handling Exceptions in van Rossum's
tutorial today and saw the first instance of
	print itemA , itemB
Now I shall not forget and have a mental link with  
	while something : somethingElse 
Two pains for the price of one.

And thanks to Dan Perl; there's a name to conjure with:)
