I think it would be wrong to adopt that philosophy, and to be honest,
I'm getting a little tired about having to suffer certain decisions
purely because this is the default emacs indentation style. Even
if I did use emacs, I just think it's more important to be consistent
with the rest of the Python community.
There is actually an official Python Coding Style, called PEP8:
I think we should strive to not break whatever suggestions this guide
provides, and add some extra of our own if we feel necessary.
I looked at the Google Python Style Guide, and it does not conflict
with PEP8. I also have relatively limited knowledge of Python, but
I absolutely agree with everything in that document.
