I think you misunderstood what I meant by "structural" (and I wasn't
particularly clear -- my bad): if I need to add a quick "if" statement
during debugging, I don't like having to make sure I clean up the block
structure formatting.  With just about any other language, I don't have
to.  I do, as I think I did make clear, clean up the formatting after
the debugging.
