Your strong association with "here comes a suite" should come from indentation, that's how Python works.
We're going around in circles: I've already demonstrated that there is plenty of indentation changes in Python code that isn't associated with here-comes-a-suite.
Or you should fallback to opening and ending braces like Java/C (or even old school begin-end keywords) if you fail to do so.
Why? I already have indentation plus here-comes-a-suite colons in Python.
