   YMMV, but for me, just reading through this fun thread took more
time then ever debugging issues caused by bad Python code
indentation. :-D

   So, my suggestion would be to just ignore the problem and deal
with any resulting issues as they occur.

   Clean coding & development practices, some of which have been
mentioned earlier in this thread and are useful for many other
reasons as well, will additionally reduce the chance of such
errors causing any non-trivial issues.

   Best regards,
