It would just be very impractical to convert back and forth every time 
you want to run a program. Python also supports tabs AND spaces though 
you can easily convert things.

But indeed, in 100 years or so ;-) if people get accustomed to using 
these symbols and input will be easy, digraph support could become 
optional and then phase out... Just as now happens with C trigraphs.
