Indentations and future evolution of languages

This is an interesting post, it shows me that fitness plateau where
design of Python syntax lives is really small, you can't design
something just similar:

Living on a small fitness plateau isn't good, even if it's very high,
because it's evolutionary unstable :-(
Indentation-wise Haskell syntax seems one of the very few local maxima
that is close enough to the little fitness plateau where Python is.
