I agree with this premise ... but stated that way, the patch does
entirely the wrong thing, because it's stripping trailing semis at
the word level not the line level. I think it's a lot more surprising
to drop the semi in
\x foo; bar
than when it's actually at the end of the line.
How about stripping trailing semis (perhaps whitespace too?) before
the line is broken into words?
