I'd have agreed six months ago - but since then perltidy has got to  
me. Now I hardly ever manually format Perl - I just type stuff with  
no whitespace and then hit the button I have bound to perltidy.

That's not possible with Python (although providing you indent  
correctly everything else could certainly be pytidied) and I miss it.
