in reply to Mandatory indenting

One general comment though. The design philosophy of Python language itself is "there must be an obvious to do it," whereas Perl's "there is more than one way to do it."

Apparently, they have opposite design philosophies. Forced indenting is more consistent with Python's design philosophy than Perl's.

You can rarely appear right to everyone every time, but at least you can be consistent. I supposed that's what the language designers did.
