Yes, but Python is already a bit handicapped concerning posting code
anyway because of its significant whitespace. Also, I believe once
Python will support this, the editors will allow converting "digraphs"
<=, >= and != to symbols back and forth, just as all editors learned to
convert tabs to spaces back and forth... And newsreaders and mailers are
also improving. Some years ago, I used to write all German Umlauts as
digraphs because you could never be sure how they arrived. Nowadays, I'm
using Umlauts as something very normal.
