That would be a great idea.  Once I actually tried it, it was easy to work
with, but the lack of documentation does steepen the initial learning curve
a bit.

I would let this particular sleeping dog lie.  I think the code in Python is
occasionally sync'd with Sam's code.  Changing the spacing would just add a
bunch of spurious differences and thus make that task more difficult.
