Ok, here's the Hello World example from the Scala website:

object HelloWorld {
  def main(args: Array[String]) = {
    Console.println("Hello, world!")

Opening and closing braces?
"def main(args: Array[String])"?

About the only Pythonic thing I can see here is the "def" keyword.
Otherwise, it looks too much like Java - no, thanks!
