If semicolons are such a terrible drain, there's always JS and Python.


For someone who likes D, Nim (http://www.nim-lang.org) would be better a choice for a language at the same level with Python like syntax. Changing D surface syntax is an obvious non-starter.

Or Crystal

https://crystal-lang.org/

It's Ruby syntax with some of the nice features you'd find in D. It's only alpha at the moment and doesn't work on Windows.

The thing is that there is no way of telling how much D code would break (including the compiler), if semicolons were removed or optional. That's too big of a gamble for a purely aesthetic change.
