As I pointed out in another post to this thread, that's essentially what
Tools/scripts/pindent.py (part of the Python source distribution) does
(no need to comment the beginning of a block since it's always a colon
followed by newline; block-end comments in pindent.py are more
informative).  Just use and/or adapt that...
