I almost had the same reaction when I first read this, but I did
continue reading, and I'm glad.  I remember making the same mistake
when I first read about Python using whitespace to control structure.
"Oh no, not another FORTRAN.", and I didn't look again for 3 months.

This is a small problem with a simple solution (see my earlier post),
and one that will retain the advantages of tabs.
