What was troll-like about it? The OP made it clear he didn't like the 
way Python made use of tabs, but he didn't want an argument about it or 
to be persuaded to change his mind or change anyone else's.

He wanted to know if there was a simple syntax wrapper for it. That 
seems reasonable enough.

(Actually *I* would quite like to know why languages don't have 
switchable syntax anyway to allow for people's personal preferences.)
