You are years late for complaining about new signature syntax. The
'new' annotation syntax was introduced 5+ years ago in 3.0 and is
already being used for various purposes, but mostly for type hinting.
The current proposal is to introduce a new module that standardizes the
type-hinting use. It is true that it will likely make the use of
annotation more common.
