Do not take the following patronizing. But why to you believe that you
hate parens?

You put yourself into big troubles if you miss the opportunity of
Bigloo. I haven't counted parens or had to cope with it in any time I
can think of since parens will never come in your way. Why should
parens interfere with your way?

The code is much better structured in Scheme than in Python. It is a
big mistake to assume that Python displays any readability. The one
and only thing, provided I were a teacher, which I would never use for
annoying school people in introductory courses would be Python for its
huge learning curve and its messy behavior.

You should give Scheme a try.
