I'm used to doing that as well in most other environments.
Maybe it's just my faulty memory, but I think I remember discussions 
here about not relying on assigning values to local or script variables 
at declaration time because it's not an officially supported syntax.

I've stayed away from doing it for that reason, and I'd be quite happy 
to be wrong about this. Possibly the engine/parser now supports this 
syntax, possibly I'm misremembering or thinking of a different 
discussion of a different topic...
