In Python, functions must be declared before they are called. If your
"main" function is only called at the bottom of the program, then you
can call any function in the program from the main function. For
   def main():
   def hello():
     print "hello"

If you move the call to "main()" up above the declaration of "hello",
then the program does not work. This is the difference.
