Hi all,

I distinctively seem to remember that once it was possible in squeak to 
do something like:

{ x. y } := { 1. 2.}

to give two variables a value at once. But when I tried this just a 
minute ago it didn't parse. Is my memory failing on me and was it just 
never possible to begin with or do I have the wrong syntax? If this 
feature was in there before but is now removed can anybody tell me why 
it was removed? It seemed like such a good language feature to me :)
