Python allows spaces or tabs (I used spaces).  It raises an exception
if it can't figure out what you mean.

Python allows semicolons to delimit statements instead of lines, and
also parallel assignment, but the block indentation problem I will
have to look into; though Neil just suggested a "." (replacement)
work-around for the time being.

Thanks Neil!
