Amen to that, although we all get carried away in the heat of the moment.

People using Python have to learn to 'see' the block boundaries. Both
myself and a colleague had that experience, that at first we weren't
always seeing what block a particular statement belonged to, e.g. a
dedented line after a block.

As for Lua and indentation, there's a lot of code written by casual
scripters and man it's a mess. A good editor should help people with
that kind of thing, but it's a tricky feature to implement so that it
doesn't drive the coder crazy.
