[given that significant whitespace generally makes real programs harder
to read]

You should validate that statement against a couple of programs from the obfuscated C contest. First, try to understand them exactly the way they are submitted, and then, format them in a consistent way and try again.

It is a commonly reported story in the Python world that people write a script, forget about it and loose it somewhere on their hard drive. Sometime later, they have the same need again and write it from scratch, and when they accidentally find the original script, it looks almost identical to the new script they wrote. I never heard reports like that from other languages.
