Why? Please don't.

In fact, allow me to put a semi-colon in c-specs because I do it all the time by accident. Kidding of course, I don't want my bad habits enabled.

Anyway, it's good practice to have the closing indicator in case you have to read or learn other languages. I also find it helps me in reading code. Semi-colon, boom, end of line.

Not to mention we have a lot of programs that do this:
callProcedure( parm1
:parm2 );

I would think this situation would have to cause the compiler extra work to validate it, or that method of calling a procedure would no longer be acceptable (which is actually ok with me, I prefer the colon after the parm instead of before it).

And drop the closing semi-colon.
