Unfortunately you are wrong Michalis. Ever heard of 'syncron-edit'?


You only need to change one variable, and all other instances will
change to. And syncron-edit applies to any selection of text. So
already works in more cases.

I vote against adding this language feature. It's not pascal-like and
actually makes the code harder to read. It also only applies to simple
assignment. Case begin..end blocks can do much more than simple
