I was sure this 'indenting thing' would be one of the two major issues that kept me grumbling about Python. However, after just a month or so of casual Python programming, I find myself becoming dissatisfied with extra work required by braces and begin/end in my day to day C and Pascal programming.

Was totally surprised how quickly I came to like the indenting.  

Just my 2cents.
