why brackets & commas in func calls can't be ommited? (maybe it could be PEP?)

You should really post this somewhere that Guido will see it so he can 
add it to PEP 3099: "Things that will Not Change in Python 3000". 
Really, there's no way this is going to fly, so you might as well drop 
it or write your own language.

P.S. If you use IPython, I believe you can get some of this.
