Cheeky :-)

(For those who are not closely following comp.lang.python, I am pretty
sure Serhiy is wryly referring to an ongoing thread in that forum.
Someone is arguing that Python should grow a U+0009-delimited syntax for
tabular data, and quickly demonstrated a lack of interest in the familir
reasons why this is a bad idea. The thread is already past the point of
calm discussion, so I am not linking to it because it's not worth wading
