I think the suggestion that those who have some problem
with how python deals with compound statements - obligated
indentation, no end markers - are newbees, is getting
stale. I am not a newbee and I have problems with it.
I had problems with it when I was a newbee, grew used
to it and even liked it at some point and now again
have problems with it.

Well problems is probably too strong, would prefer
differently seems closer.
