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.
