But if you don't want the EOLs? Example from some code of mine:

I use this kind of thing frequently. Don't know if others consider it bad style.
Well, I do it a lot too; don't know if that makes it good or bad, though. :)
I personally don't see a lot of benefit to changing the lexical rules for Py3K, however. The hard part of lexing Python is INDENT/DEDENT (and the associated unbalanced parens rule), and none of these proposals suggest removing that. Overall, this whole thing seems like a bikeshed to me.
