In fact, I dislike Python's grouping by indentation (especially how
it is implemented in the interactive interpreter) and
a few other syntactical aspects (e.g. the need to explicitly
specify the "object" parameter in a method definition).
But other aspects are very nice and outweigh the syntactical nastiness.

I do not see lots of underscore rules, maybe because I disregard PEP 8...
For me, the Java style ("getMainType") is easier readable than
the one prefered in the Python runtime library ("get_main_type").
