> It would be very useful to have an IN operator, e.g.:
> status in ['A', 'B', 'C']
> that would return a boolean. This can currently be done with :
> status == 'A' or status == 'B' or status == 'C'
> but (especially for longer lists) the IN operator would be more concise and more elegant.
> Extra bonus points, of course, if this works with variables, e.g.:
> status in possibleStatuses
> where possibleStatuses would be an object of type Collection.
