      Python delineates scope merely with indentation. I mean the next
      command in the same scope. So, given the python snippet (this is,
      btw, no endorsement of python):

      for i in f():

      print i

      print "done"


      if my cursor is on the first line (e.g. on the first char of the first
      line), I want to be able to skip to print (or to exit if there were no

      So, I want to look for the next line that has as much white space at
      the beginning as the line where the cursor currently is - or has less
      white space, meaning that the section is over.

      The strategy is to use \{0,x}, where x is the builtin-function
      wincol(). I'm trying to use the ^R= evaluation operation but vim
      complains with:

      E554: Syntax error in \{...}
