regarding line breaks, I have two non-exclusive ideas:

a) just spaces: I think this might get a bit complicated to code, tho'...
b) Perhaps it's more transparent for the loop command to, instead of using {} brackets, have a "loop/end loop" syntax [or maybe I've been using too much SPSS lately :P]; similarly, "rule/end rule" or something like that. I know it would be way more intuitive for me, at least.

Could you have the statements either end with a line break or a semicolon, or something similar? That would be unambiguous, as long as you're not using semicolons for anything else.

Yes, I could. I was trying to say that some kind of unambiguous separator would be necessary.

Websites and fora that can't show things in a monospaced font are utterly useless for talking about any kind of formal language or script, whether it uses whitespace significantly or not. And if, for some reason, you find yourself on such a site, well, that's what is for.

another problem: it takes more effort to manually space in to the required length than it does to add brackets

another problem: isn't parsing the whitespace more of a bitch than parsing brackets?

another problem: people have different indent styles, so forcing them into one really isn't that good of an idea when there's an alternative

and yes I realize these are criticisms usually reserved for large programming languages, but "nobody is going to actually use this so what the hell" is not a good design principle

1. A lot of people use notepad or nano or whatever to write code, so it's probably bad to have syntax that's inconvenient for people using minimal editors. Hell, I know a lot of people who do most of their code in ssh sessions, which pretty much means nano (no features), vi (eugh), or emacs (bloated as all hell). Although this thing is probably GUI-only anyway so I guess that's not applicable here.

2. The start bracket thing is easily avoidable by ignoring whitespace entirely. (well, maybe not entirely - this isn't 80s-era BASIC - but trash the tabs, CRs, and LFs)

3. Using whitespace at all brings up problems for people who use editors that don't automatically convert tabs to strings of spaces: if someone has tab length set to four and alternates between tab and space x4 to get an indent depth of four, they're fucked, and it'll be hell for them to notice that problem. You can't even assume a standard tab length for that sort of situation; industry standard is 8, as far as I've seen, but a lot of programmers have it set to 4.
