> leading white space in python is significant

To which I reply:

As a completely off-topic question:

What the heck were they thinking when the designers of Python chose "amount 
of leading white space" to indicate block structure?  It seems absolutely 
guaranteed to cause problems such as this.

(Feel free to respond off-list.  I'm sincerely curious about this -- ever 
since I started looking at Python, this has bugged me.)
