Okay, and the syntax "target := value" seems to be much easier to handle with. I do support this feature, but now I'm worried about the meaning of ':=', it seems to be a lazy assignment in some degree. I'm not sure using ':=' is proper here. > Inasmuch as I might like assignment expressions, it would only be in while or if statements, personally. Not exactly, assignment expression also works for "if expression", we can now have null checking. var.method() if var:= function() else None Null checking is importance enough to have a specific syntax in many other languages(C#, kotlin, Ruby and so on), and we can even have more than null checking by adding expression assignment.
