I have updated the PR with:

* Works for while statements (we can make it work for other kinds of statements but is a bit tricky because those have different grammar paths. We could do this in other PRs.

* I changed the error message for when the LHS is a name. In other cases we still want the special error message. For example:

>>> f() = 1
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    f() = 1
SyntaxError: cannot assign to function call. Maybe you meant '==' instead of '='?

If we still want something different we could say:

"cannot assign to ... here". The "here" makes it clear that in other places could be possible to do an assignment (for instance with names or attributes).
