The FAQs include a discussion of the rejected Pascal "with" statement (different from the Python `with`). From time to time people propose variants of it, such as using a leading dot to make it unambiguous.

Guido has just firmly rejected the latest such proposal. The FAQ should be updated to make it clear that even with a leading dot the proposal is dead, with a link to Guido's pronouncement.
