"Any language where whitespace dictates what is inside a conditional and what isn't (eg Python) needs to die a slow and painful death IMHO."

I just think of it as 'Allman Style' without the curly braces

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indent_style#Allman_style

And if you put the ':' right after the control statement, it doesn't look a THING like K&R style (which I HATE)

(and I also dislike hard-tabs, so multiple spaces are fine, and pluma does auto-indent, and highlights things in a readable manner)
