If you are a function over form person, you should count braces / if & endif / what ever you like. If you prefer indentation as syntactical sugar "and" prefer making the code consistent and follow some agreed upon rules, Python is for you. For your example, I would suggest proposing a change to the current PEP for indentation.

I think the project is a good one. I cut my teeth on an on sale TS-1000 from a catalog store Montgomery Wards that had it on closeout for $35.00. Call me stupid, but the hours I spend mashing the membrane keyboard learning every last bit of the z-80 and what it could do still serves me well!
