we could set simple criteria for "; "
a) within code block - keep the current meaning : new statement
b) elsewhere:  pause application ($)

$ would keep its current meaning and the new "honest, confusing" type.
Still be usable, would not break the code.

; may mark the code visually better than $

e.g. braces are overloaded:  code block, data record
