This might be good news.  Despite a bit curious about prototype-based
languages, I initially stopped reading about Prothon when I saw that it
chose mandatory TABs. `make' is the only tool for which I still give in
such things :-).

Allow me a question.  Is there some inter-operability sought between
Prothon and Python?  That could ease taming communities.  As far as I
understood, so far, these are currently meant as incompatible beasts.
