There was a version of Python (compatible at a bytecode level) that did
implement braces for blocks. It was called pythonb, but it is now
defunct, understandably for lack of interest. It was just a
modification to the parser is all. So it's completely doable. In fact
one could probably do it with a preprocessor of some kind. But there's
little utility in it.
