I did. (Or: from Java via Python.)
I don't think it's the indentation. At least, not *just* that.
FWIW, I speculate:
1. Python users have already chosen expressivity over efficiency
2. For all that it's a "rapid" development language, and being dynamically
typed, Python doesn't completely abandon discipline in program construction.
