Hey thanks for posting this, I wasn't aware that this is possible!  I
really like the fact that you are able to do this if required.  (If
your problem domain and hence the target audience is a group of people
where a certain set of symbols have a well established conventional
set of meanings [and hence will be quite readable to them] then I
think it's quite sensible to just use the conventional lingo, incl.
symbols when suitable, so as I say, I really like the fact that Python
can support the above directly.  )  Thanks again for posting!
