Not worth it. Gripes about semicolons are a symptom of only
seeing the superficial and not really understanding enough
about languages to see what really is and isn't important.
It's like dumping someone because you don't like the color of
a dress they wore. Superficial, shallow, inconsequential
bikeshed bullcrap, not even worth debating.
groovy, for e.g., is ok without semicolons and with semicolons.
if there is a question of backward compatibility, is it
possible to support semicolons?
Can you give a strong technical argument why we should get rid of
the semicolons? I personally quite like them, as do others, so I
don't think "I don't like the looks of them" is a strong
argument. What would the language gain by losing the semi-colons.
