It has been said that having assignments be expressions will not affect those
who do not wish to use them this way, but I beg to differ.
Just as Geust@Lambda.
I don't think the point was half as much to enforce a style as to prevent an
error, specifically the miss-typing of == as = causing masive dammage.
My own preference would be to make the expressions. Cold is case-sensitive, so
how much can it care what a good typer I am? :)
I still belive the change should be made and released under a different name.
