We could also just decide we don't need it :)

If we do (I haven't read the PEP) does a statement with an assignment make the variable global in that scope, or does it only affect the global variable for the duration of the assignment, and otherwise the variable remains local in the scope?  (I don't know which to guess, and the ambiguity is disturbing.  I like the current clarity even if it is more typing.)
