I generally don't mind this aspect of Python, but I've recently found that 
it can cause problems when transmitting code.  For example, I saw some 
code that I wanted to copy in DejaNews c.l.py archives, but the lines 
wrap in narrow columns in DejaNews.  I had to reindent the code.  Grrr.

I have also had problems when e-mailing code when I e-mail the code as 
text in the message instead of attaching a document.  

Is there a better way to transmit code so that possible indentation
munging won't force the reader to reindent?
