And personally I prefer reading this and other informal whitespace
styles. One of the big hassles I have as a yellow-belt pythoneer is
trying to decode somebody else's multiple layers of unbroken (()),
especially if I happen to use a non-syntax-highlighting
(((((), ((), ()), ((())), ()))))-ly yr's

/__\|\ || ||__ |\ || |___|/_\|___] |

PS: The sad thing is that I dropped the above sign-off into a python
interpreter to ensure that I'd got the number of braces and commas
