OK then, "The documentation clearly states that not all statements can 
be expressions". Specifically Guido has justified the fact that an 
assignment does not return any value, and therefore cannot be used as a 
component of an expression.

Mea culpa, but I'm not going to *plonk* myself - then *nobody* would be 
listening to me :-)
