Let me say that while I do think every statement should return a value, I'm
not in favour of inlined assignments. Although I do like the ability to
cascade assignments:

a = b = c = 1;

But once you've got every statement returning a value, it's perhaps a little
hard to prevent the horrible C style of assignments (which I have to admit I
use in C, for brevity and efficiency).
