I'm not going to argue minor points at length, because others have said the same thing here, but I will push back a little and explain that what you guys consider visual clutter, I find helps me to visually break up and quickly identify sections in my code, which is why I like those separators.

Thanks, that's a good tip. In this case I might prefer showing the full line of +s because that way, wysiwyg, it's just easier to visualize the output.

Thanks again for the input. . . I will further digest what you all said and study some more (including the docstrings)
