Now there's a snide remark....
Can anyone explain exaxtly why any method of code block indication is better
than any other? And how, specifically, is making whitespace a significant
syntactical element an improvement over any other more readily identified
method (by this I mean, how do you visually distinguish a tab character from
a series of space characters in your IDE or editor)?

Python? What justification for the effort is there? Why don't you do it
yourself and call it PyLua or Luathon or whatever?
