Because it makes it easy to work on code.  My preferred editor (TextPad) 
allows block selection of indented text such that I can copy and paste 
functions and methods into the python CLI and work with them there.  I 
find it very easy when developing to keep the CLI open for this purpose 
and interactively test as I write.  Unfortunately, PEP 8 doesn't support 
this use case as once the blank lines separating methods are pasted in, 
your class definition is complete.  So I either put hash marks in or 
leave the blank lines out...
