While this self-evidently true, it is not an argument.  I'd like to
see some well-controlled usability studies about readability and
significant whitespace, but otherwise it is a matter of taste. For
instance, I don't care for vim, can never get over the modality and
the loads of odd little commands. But it really cooks in the hands of
those who like it and live within it.

repeated use of 'local' and the trailing 'end' keywords forming the
famous 'arrow head' pattern.
