>Python is essentially Scheme with indentation instead of parentheses.

When I think of Scheme I think of call/cc, hygienic macros, everything
done with a minimal number of primitives, all non-functional operators
marked (set! etc), a denotational semantics in the appendix.  Python
is a bit lispy in having lots of list functions and some version of
lambda, but it's hardly Scheme.
