Given that modern editors typically display 50-100 lines of code
at a time its not been a big problem. Also given the much higher
level of code in Python vv C you don't get so many huge blocks.
Finally if you regularly come across blocks of code more than 50
lines long then I think its probably time to start refactoring
that code! :-)
In fact the longest indented blocks I find are class definitions.
Those can be several hundred lines long and it can be hard to
know which class you are reading if several big classes exist
inside a module. It's one area where I wish Python had adopted
the Delphi interface/implementation style where the class
interface isb published and the individuial methods are
def __Init__(a,b,c): pass
def f(d): pass
def g(): pass
implementation: <---- New keyword or something?
# initialise here
# real code here
# and here
But thats for another topic I guess... :-)
