Such as? What program would use .python with a good reason? I'd like to
see some proof that anything is using .python. I've looked at Google
codesearch, and the only thing the string constant ".python" seems to be
used for is an alternate file name extension.
Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
