Sounds like a generalization of the idea of allowing indentation like

     if foo then bar
     else baz

in `do' notation.  It might probably be obtained similarly by just adding
a few optional semi-colons at the right place in the BNF rules.  whether
those optional semi-colons will render the grammar significantly
more complex, I don't know.
