I'm sorry for any misunderstanding, but I can't easily find any references
to the ';' being an execution request rather than an execution demand (our
Internet gateway has been somewhat flaky, though...). As n ex-system admin,
I find I like to keep my executables in a set of directories rather than
spread all over the place. The transparent virtualization of URL
directories <-> script outputs under the non-semicolon scheme is attractive
to me. I think it really does come down to a matter of taste...
