Hi Berker. I updated your patch according to my comments in the documentation. I hope you don’t mind.

I reverted all the changes about subscripting and slicing an iterable, since this bug is only about assigning to a “target list”.

Actually it is true (despite the current documentation) that you can often assign

sequence[slice] = iterable

But I think that is a separate problem.
