Now that the list is surrounded by parens makes clear that it ends with
the closing paren and not with a line break. So you could still use
commas (without backslashes) to separate the items over multiple lines.
See e.g.

That's the pro-semicolon reason that makes most sense in all comments
that I've read so far in this discussion.
But maybe that's just something where you have to get used to.
