"in the long run this code is not maintainable since all the white space makes the code looking not distinctively enough."

Where do you get this? The only instance where I see Python becoming unreadable due to whitespace is when a developer abuses whitespace where it's not needed e.g. a = [ 'a', 'list' ]

Another example could be chaining method calls Java-style, but all of this is alleviated by just following PEP8.

The significance of whitespace has no effect on the readability of a language.
