My point is that people familiar with all other Python code in existence will not be hacking on webkitpy. It's WebKit C++ developers who we want to contribute to webkitpy more, and super arbitrary differences that are impossible to rationalize are an unnecessary barrier to entry.

I don't know if many people have the muscle memory to type a different number of spaces before a comment. I think that in practice, it's just about more iterations before EWS style checker is happy. What are we gaining by this?
