Anyway is a contraction of any + way
Always is a contraction of all + ways

Personally, I think the result is that "anyways" grates. And, while I 
don't really care, there is a rule of thumb that advises against such 
things. Though in this case, the real issue is that it's a kind of 
in-joke and software is an inappropriate place for such things, even all 
the "spam" jokes in Python.
