This is a silly argument. But I'm in a silly mood...

Semantically, it's exactly the same thing (or put another way, the 
abstract syntax is the same).

Otherwise, there are two things to count: characters and tokens. if () {} 
wins on characters (6-9, not counting spaces). if then end wins on tokens 
(3-5). Of course, if () wins in the case that you only need a block, not a 
statement, in both ways. But it sacrifices consistency to achieve this.
