Personally, I think that's worse than making ';' mandatory or adopting the
Haskell Layout rules. The essential point, I think, is that we're
introducing an end-of-statement notion and debating how visually intrusive
it should be. Something along these lines might be the right thing to do.
In fact, in the interests of honesty I should admit that if I had understood
the Layout rules earlier, I might have adopted Haskell syntax from the
beginning. Without them, the language is horribly ambiguous to parse, and
not knowing what to look for at the time I failed to delve into the
specification deeply enough.
