Personally, I don't follow PEP8 either. Note: PEP-8 gives 'coding
conventions for the Python code **comprising the standard library in
the main Python distribution**' (my emphasis). My coding conventions
are similar to, but not exactly the same as, PEP-8. It would be
ridiculous IMO (and PEP-8 acknowledges this) for such a permissive
language as Python to put a 'coding style' straitjacket around itself.

YMMV, of course.
