However, that white-space driven scope drives me crazy... It is way to fragile...


That's not the only thing that's fragile; having type errors detected only at runtime is far worse than whitespace scoping. There's nothing like deploying an app and getting type errors the first time the user gives it the one bizarre combination of inputs that isn't in your unit-tests.

Static languages catch these types of errors before giving you an executable to run; dynamic languages only figure out the type at runtime.
