it's not just about remembering. It's about typos. A better argument is that compilers these days catch accidental assignment, but some of us have just had certain practices drummed into us for years and they stick.

Double equals sign is necessary in the C family of languages because there are different ways to do equality and assignment.

And you may find the C language family inelegant, but there's a reason they carried the day and pascal well... didn't.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
