Also, by the way, I would suggest that the Python distribution tries better to
comply with Guido's coding standards for white space within lines.  To make a
complete picture of what I would like for each and every line of code:

* four spaces per indent on the left,
* no space before function opening parenthesis in the middle,
* no spurious space at all, ever, on the right :-).

Guido does not agree that the third point is important, yet I think that
it is clearly mandated by perfection!  What else for us, anyway! :-)
