But expressions beginning with brackets introduce ambiguity:
The code above is parsed as a=b(f)(2) not as a=b;(f)(2).
Some languages have a rule that newlines end statements if it makes sense to
do so, but isn't that confusing too? Plus I don't think it would be easy to
add this feature to the Lua parser.
