That is really great. I start using assertions in my code.

IMO we ought to.  We have all the runtime support.  All the compilers
we recommend support it (and usually give the option to disable code
generation for it).

How about treating it like 'return' and only using parens if the line

   assert something;

   assert something : something_else;

And, if you need to wrap the line, consider wrapping before the ':'
(i.e., treat it as an operator).

As for the optional message, I think that can be done on a
case-by-case basis.
