I agree. I very rarely use blank lines inside functions. As I see it,
if you feel you need a blank line for separation within a function,
that's an indication your function is overly complex and should be
Keeping blank lines out of functions also makes it easy to copy/paste
those functions into the interactive interpreter, which can be handy
e.g. when sharing snippets of code by email.
