After some more thinking and discussions, John Williams claims he can
make "var" work like "_no.var" in Python code. This is a much cleaner
solution, the Python code can be real Python code. Who knows, perhaps
some day Python will use the "$" character itself.
Therefore, I have backed out the support for $var in Python code. This
avoids that people really start using it.
John is currently working on the new implementation, hopefully we can
start testing it soon.
I tried checking in the new version, but the CVS server appears to be
refusing connections. I'll do it asap.

to twitch. You pick up the phone and manually dial your ISP's access
number. You try to hum to communicate with the modem. You succeed.
