May I ask which mergemap-syntax do you prefer?

I can live with both. On one hand I like the simple syntax of the
mergemap directive (without brackets etc.) on the other hand I like to
write directives without any terminator (2b). The latter is very
convenient for the prefix-directive. But if we need the terminator
(2a) I'd prefer the dot over the semicolon for directives.

Since nobody has spoken up for the other proposals, we should either
choose 2a or 2b, right?

Best regards,
