/me agrees with the python suggestion. It took me far too long to get
used to indenting code. If I'd grown up on Python, then I'd have been
indenting my code from day one. There is something to say for using
C-Syntax languages as well, such as PHP or Java, in that they all use
the same syntax( surprisingly enough :) ), making it easier to
transgress from one to the other.
