That's not true. As long as the comma is used as separator one line can 
affect an adjacent one. If the comma is written on the end of a line, then 
removing the last line means altering the line before. If the comma is at 
front of a line, then removing the first line requires altering the second 

Really different is only the usage of the comma as terminator. Actually 
this is possible in import and export statements, but not in constructor
