Since we're discussing arrow functions and syntax...

I like arrow functions, and sometimes the only reason I don't use them is
because I need this-binding.

So I, personally would like a variant that uses the CoffeeScript -> syntax
that is precisely like => except that it uses traditional this-binding. The
only 2 issues I can see are:

* adding more syntax to the language
* could the concise form bind this? Would, say `const foo = obj ->
Object.assign(obj,` work, if then used, say, as follows: `const
baz = { bar: { /*whatever*/ } };, { /* something */ })`
