I think that's something of a straw man argument. Everyone indents
their code anyways, or I should hope so at any rate. Unless I'm quite
wrong, Python just makes consistent indentation a requirement. In this
regard I'd compare it to Haml's removal of HTML end-tags and reliance
on indentation.

Caveat: I don't use Python - personal preference - so if I got
something blatantly wrong...
