That actually works both ways.  := and X=Y Y+=Z expanding later
with unwanted additions are (apparently) equally unknown features.

I'm not contending one way is better then the other.  What I'm saying is
that 95% of the tree, the handbook, and portlint is already 1 way.
Flipping it creates a ton of work to bring things in line [even over time].

That said do what you want.
