Actually write/writeln, and although they used parens like
procedures, they had special syntax for output formatting
that wasn't available to user-defined procedures, so they
were at least as special as the py2 print, maybe more so.

Wirth got rid of them in Modula-2, so he seemed to be
thinking along the same lines as py3.
