That is a brilliant idea! Python code can specify encoding in the beginning, we might use another similar line to opt in for that kind of language features.

Once in that ';'-required mode, the trouble of typing a ';' at end of almost every line can be easily avoided by a smart editor: 


1) when a single 'Return' key is hit, and the line is not ending in ':' or ';' (white spaces and comments discarded), automatically append a ';' to the end of the line.
2) to continue the line to the next line, hit "Shift+Enter", then no ';' will be appended to the line.

Cheers,
