[swift-evolution] Proposal to remove semicolons

+1 I think that let people do whatever they want if i makes them happy when it makes the code less readable is not a good idea. I support the notion that semicolon should not be allowed at end of line. It does nothing to help readability of the code. If it does nothing, it should go. Swift code should be easy to read, and in this case clarity wins. We have to break the semicolon habit :-) 

Perhaps providing a warning fix-it which removes them from the end of all lines in the file. I suspect most cases the only reason people put it there is habit or they are converting old code from another language.
