Semicolons do seem to make life easier. Having them as an option is a
little confusing as well. Would it be worth doing a dynamically
configurable compiler? Something like $; would turn on required
semicolons. Or DoString/DoFile could take a semicolon-required flag. The
other option would be to have DoString and DoFile add semicolons, but there
would be that 1% case that wouldn't work.
What's the hardest and most common case to automatically add semicolons to.
