How does that have any bearing on sucklessness? It's a separate
argument. Practically, whitespace sensitivity doesn't necessarily have
much negative impact, would have been nice to force upon certain people,
and, at least in Python, has rules flexible enough that it's quite nice.

So shell sucks then? Anyhow, you can make your own mostly conformant
implementation that compiles rather than interprets or JITs if you like.
Not everything needs to be compiled, as nice as it would be sometimes.
