I remember that when I had to amend the code of a certain programmer I
always needed half a day to reformat his code. Because he was very
good in copy/paste, but I could not made head or tail of his code
because of the zig-zag of his code.
That is why I immediately like the indent rule of Python very much.
My only ‘problem’ was that I used to put debug statement at the
beginning of a line to see immediately what the debug statements
where. But that was a small price to pay. ;-)
