In all seriousness, there's a point at which disambiguation in the parser (whether software, hardware, or wetware) is just too much work, and a bit of punctuation makes that pain go away. You can take that too far (and in the case of Python, I have to read very carefully to figure out the relationships of blocks separated by vertical whitespace) but sometimes a little consistency is not a bad thing.
