Well some days ago I tried to use otfinst.py. The version on CTAN
mixes tabs and spaces and used an obsolete syntax for print. My
python didn't like both. To correct the second was not so difficult,
but the first was really trying. How to you get correct identation
when you have no idea what the author used as tabwidth and the
needed grouping can not be guessed from the code? Imho a language
where grouping depends from something so fragile as indentation is
rather mad.
