Uh, this is much less of a problem with indentation-based
syntax than with delimiter-based such.

   def foozer(x)
     if x > 10
       print x
     end
     do other stuff
   end

Comment out the `if' line in the above code and you still
get a syntax error, but on a different line!

In general, with indentation-based syntax, what you see is
what you get, while with delimiter-based syntax, what you
see might or might not be what you get.
