In my email, I also gave two examples of legal Python code with more than
one statement per line.

In general, you can put any number of commands on the same line using a
semi-colon as separator.  That means that the following is legal Python:

print 'hello'; print 'goodbye'; print 'up'; print down

However, conditional and looping constructs that contain a colon -- that is,
"if", "for", "while", etc. -- are limited to one per line, and the statement
ending in a colon must be the first one on the line.  That is, the first of
these lines is legal Python and the second and third are not.

if 1: print 'goodbye'; print 'hello'
print 'hello'; if 1: print 'goodbye'
if 1: print 'goodbye'; else: print 'hello'
