[IronPython] Using blocks separators instead of indentation

Ori, In my previous post I forgot to join the line with a semi-colon.

The following is a legal -- albeit "unpythonic" -- single line that meets
your requirement:

>>> mycommand = "i = 1\nif i >= 1:\n\tprint 'Test passed'\nelse:\n\tprint
'test failed'"; exec(mycommand)
Test passed
>>>

May the Python gods have mercy!

Thanks but I did not ask if it is ugly or not. I just need it.
Is there a way to do it?
