I've certainly never needed to set hundreds of variables at once in my 
code. I might have hundreds of values, but if so they go into a list or a 
dictionary or some other suitable data structure.

There isn't any point setting hundreds of variables unless you also 
have hundreds of different expressions accessing hundreds of variables. If 
they are all accessed in a similar way then this indicates they shouldn't 
be separate variables. If they are all accessed differently then you have 
some very complex code and hard to maintain code which can probably be 
simplified.

Can you give a use case where you think 'hundreds of variables' would be 
needed?
