Hmm. I'm pretty sure you know that I don't think 37 levels of for statements is the minimum required number for ugliness,
Of course not, but that is the only number you gave ;-) I would agree to something smaller than 10, but larger than 4.
I would also argue that the more valid comparison would be nested functions or classes- both perfectly pretty constructs on their own- which would cause me to gnaw on otherwise unoffending office furniture if I encountered them nested 3 deep.
For classes I agree. For functions I would allow 3. But in all casses, the number that is ok is usefully larger than 1.
