I don't see much value in restricting the assignment target to names
only, but if that's what it takes, it can be restricted, at least
initially. As to chaining... well, since the entire construct (target
:= expr) is an expression, it can be used on the right of :=, so short
of outright forbidding it, there's not a lot to be done.
