If you keep going down this path you'll end up writing FORTRAN. :-)

But please make the Begin and End keywords uppercase mandatory:

BEGIN PYTHON PROCEDURE Foo

[ ... ]

END PYTHON PROCEDURE Foo

And yes, the name of the PYTHON PROCEDURE must be repeated in the END clause. What else are parsers for?

Also: the line continuation token can be either a '&' on the preceding line, or a '$' on the succeeding line. Screw regexp. And the succeeding line must be indented by 4 tabs. Because.

Also also: scalar variables must be declared with var, while all other variable types must be declared with dim. For clarity, and complexity reduction.
