Pushed to doy/deprecate_uid_gid_swap. Didn't merge yet because the test
isn't really very accurate, it just checks for any of $<, $>, $(, or $)
being used on both the right and left side of a list assignment, but
would anyone be doing that outside of this context? Detecting an actual
swap would be pretty complicated.
