I simply don't like it. When I once programmed in Axiom I was always
confused about how much I have to indent a line so that the scope is
right. I was so happy to learn that Aldor's native mode is more C-like.
Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce some of the problems that made me wish
to have some more syntax than just indentation to specify the scope.

And I never felt that adding braces and semicolons is so much pain.

And maybe some day the Aldor compiler might not support #pile mode anymore.

By the way, are there already any results about distributing the Aldor
compiler with Axiom?

And may I ask back why you are (or why you are not) in favour of SPAD's
#pile mode? One can have a nice indentation also with the braces and
