Re: [RFC] Draft Proposal for New Python Syntax

If the syntax of lambda is changed such that parameter names have to be
enclosed in parantheses, we can safely use braces both for dictionaries
and for blocks. I think this is preferable to '{|', '<|' and other ugly
tokens. Changing that automatically in old code shouldn't be a problem,
and it would make 'lambda' look somewhat more like 'def', too.
