I like a parens-less call syntax, but it is unpythonic and even anti-pythonic. It can be good in some other language (like Forth or Tcl, may be Perl or Ruby) but not in Python. It requires some other coordinated features (a syntax to obtaining a reference to a function/method, perhaps shorter syntax for lambdas, braced blocks, different scoping and binding rules) and different philosophy. It doesn't quack as Python.
