It's true that this is a subjective issue, I just wondered why CTM is
so different from current languages. Ruby, Python, Groovy, Scala,
TMQL, XQuery etc. live without semicolons and CTM could live without
them but we introduce them artificially. Anyway, I think I've
published my opinion about semicolons often enough, I'll follow the
opinion of the committee. ;)

Best regards,
