I'm not Python newbie. I wrote a good deal of non-trivial python code,
and I still don't like it and still find it very annoying.

Actually, after I learned Python, I value "funny squiggles" in other
languages even more. It's very annoying, for example, that I can't split
a long line in the following way:

print a + b + 
  c + d
print "other statement"

I guess I'm required to insert some unneccessary () around the long expression
to disable the white space parsing..
