I would far prefer that they simply fix some of the bugs in processing
semi-colons. For example, the enhanced editor sometimes quietly inserts
them (%put xxxx) and often colors lines after an open code macro call which
does not use a semicolon as error. (However, in the latter case the code
does process correctly and in the former it usually doesn't matter.)
I wonder what kind of a vote "Fix all bugs within 2 new SAS releases" would
