Any little incremental change in Python you could make by having or not
having a print statement would be minor compared to the H-Bomb of
ugliness we'd get if suites of statements were to be allowed inside
Python expressions.  Having or not having a print statement might
violate some small aspect of the Zen, but it won't rape the whole list.

So I don't know what point you're trying to make.

But to answer your question, I would prefer a Python without a print
statement, since a print method could do anything the print statement
