In the case of Python what was wrong is that it accepts both tabs 
and spaces for indentation. It should have required either tabs 
or spaces. So you basically need a good editor to makes sure that 
you don't have to deal with that problem.

As far as legibility it is the same for me. It took a lot of time 
for me to get used to "{" instead of "BEGIN". It took a similar 
amount of time to get used to Python's indentation. So I'd blame 
that on conditioning (what we are used to).
