Although new to Python, I've read many posts complaining about the indenting
issue, usually from "other language" proponents. But for the longest time
I wondered why not do exactly what you have done with comment lines? In
essence I'm saying, I'm glad you made this point. :)
In Pascal, C/C++ and VB (no rock-throwing please, it was a paycheck) I
frequently did things like the following, to use a C example:
if (something == something_else)
} // if (something == something_else)
As you can see, using comments to label my end blocks explicitly. For me
this issue was never an issue.
