A hacked-together quick script might contain code like:
Compared to this, "with" adds a new indentation level and a new
variable, while breaking the flow of the code:
with open(bla) as foo:
contents = foo.read()
People used to writing production code under stringent guidelines
(introduced for good reason) will probably not be sympathetic to
quick-hack usage patterns, but Python is used on both sides of the fence.
