Code density

When I was reading the PEP for code, Guido suggests using blank lines
'sparingly.'  Yet, in most of the 'professional' code(1) I've seen,
there are often HUGE amounts of whitespace, extra blank lines, and so
on.  Is this the norm?

Has python gravitated toward more whitespace in general?
