I have been using the Whitesmith syntax without even knowing it for many years.
I started using it back in the days of Microsoft C for DOS and then nearly all coding examples I saw used this format.
I too find this notation easy on the eyes and easy to pick out the level of the code and blocks of similar code. The code is logically seperated and clean to read. My brain, limited as it is, does not have to think about matching braces or counting braces. Visually for me the code looks right and my brain can concentrate on the content.
I also would be very interested in Sublime supporting this syntax style.
