I was editing some text in Python emacs mode the
I got to thinking how Python mandatory indentation
much of the need for delimiters
Then it occured to me that XML tags are basically
delimiters of nested block structures.
Before I new it, I had written this structured text
document, trivially parseable, trivially convertable
to XML or whatever and christened it
in honour of Python from which the idea came.
I have started using this format in my docstrings
and find Barry's amazing Python editing mode to
be a very pleasent - um - structured text authoring
