What are you doing in ruby that you weren't in python?

I can write methods that take blocks.

Sure I can do the same thing in python, but I either have to write a lambda that limits me to a single line or write a one-off named method. The latter being much less clear than do ... end.

"visit_foo" as a nested function definition, immediately before it's used in a function call, is not particularly unclear.
