is is currently being used in dogescript for both assignment and as a comparator. It works, but aside from the potential for confusion and bugs, another side effect of this is the way it's implemented causes all the operators to be very restricted in their usage.

For example, index more 1, which should compile to index += 1, doesn't work.

I suggest the assignment form of is be renamed to as (which is already somewhat implemented), and the operators be made universally available. This will facilitate the addition of also for , and a global removal of the.

An alternative would be renaming the comparator is to same.
