I wasn't playing silly games at all, and I did prefix that part ofmy 
answer with "I'm afraid I don't understand this question". The OP is 
writing a program to "translate" a Python-like language that uses 
non-English keywords into Python. Since the application is transforming 
its input, it could transform braces into indentation. Of course 
*Python* doesn't use braces, but the question was how to write 
"pseudo-Python" without using indentation to indicate grouping.
