Right, that is what I was trying to do.

That's a great goal, creating a simplified python dialect that can be 
converted to regular Python syntax and bytecode.  It's a little outside 
of my reach right now though.  And prothon which was mentioned recently 
is incompatible with the python "virtual machine".

I just saw recently someone made a bytecode hack to allow for decorators 
in Python:

and I just thought I'd ask if anyone had done anything similar to allow 
for code blocks, but I guess not.  No big deal.
