I don't really want Lisp (not even with a shiny new syntax).

When I sometimes want to code in Python, why can't I used my usual syntax?
The tabbing isn't so much of a big deal, but, for example, I normally
use ":=" and "=" for Python's "=" and "==" operators, and it can be a
nuisance when switching between syntaxes. (At least Python picks up the
use of "=" inside an expression, unlike C...)
