My more moderate and immediate point is, why should the physical
encoding of the program be also the presentation format?
A definitive Python source file could be binary, XML, .py, .ast,
whatever, and that would also be the file fed to the Python
compiler/interpreter. However, your editor could choose freely how to
present it to you.
IOW, shouldn't PEP8 be redundant?
