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...
