I'm all for it. I would even be tempted of changing def to function, but
it would look stupid in:
return "Your day"
a = A()
since a.make_my_day() is really a method, not a standalone function.
We could use "function" instead of "lambda" though =)
Objections for the "else if" might be that it sounds like you can
replace "else if" with "else x=94" if you want. Thumbs up for "else if"
because it explains what it is much better than "elif". "elseif" ?
