    I don't have enough experience in it to say one way or the other.

    That's complete crap, you're not "supposed" to do it. You only do it if the pros outweigh the cons in any one particular context. If you you're "supposed" to do it, it would be forced -- it's not.

    What "specific" type of indentation would that be? Python doesn't care what sort of indentation you use, all that matters is that a single code block has consistent indentation.

    Your list probably ends there too, but... there is no "forced indentation". Indentation is a requirement to make code readable. Are you suggesting you code without any indentation? No one who writes code with the intention of anyone (including themselves) looking at it again indents code. So what's the problem? You're not being forced to do something you were going to do anyway.

    On another note, langages forcing you to do something in a particular way is not necessarily bad. To make something better, sometimes it's better to start taking things away, rather than adding more.
