|There's more than one way to do things|
When I heard of your whitespace issues with Perl6 in earlier Apocalypses, I thought you were over-reacting. But after reading Apoc. 12, I'm ready to jump on board (though perhaps not with the same vigor).
Though I've never seen a language that is completely free of whitespace restrictions, it's usually because the designers could only go so far in getting rid of it. I don't like seeing it put intentionally into a language.
(Perhaps my only exception is OCaml, where function parameters are seperated by whitespace. You've got to seperate them with something, and I don't think making the choice between seperating with 0x20 instead of 0x2C is a big deal. I haven't used it enough, though, to see if it makes a difference in real code.)
Note: All code is untested, unless otherwise stated
