The only language I feel has ever successfully used indentation is part of it's syntax is Haskell, mostly because the functional style lends itself to small, bite-sized chunks -- and I'm not going to argue just how "functional" Python is.
Even in Haskell, though, it's a "wrapper" for the more common braces/parentheses (C- or Lisp-style) hierarchy and is internally translated into this style before compilation!

Indentation-only makes decent lambdas / anonymous functions nearly impossible in Python, it appears.
