regex has it's own function(s) if you want such a function i might 
suggest this notation:

OtherLanguageStyleAssign(x=1)

I could live with that :)

more seriously, a computer language is best treated with a very 
conservative, almost nonchanging behaviour. At least in my opinion. So 
in this case (which seems to be about public relations with all the 
talk of "other users won't appreciate the put command") i have to 
strongly vote for: Leave it as is!
