A use of this is for those of us silly daring enough to use julia on the command line to process piped input, and who want to import some package. Right now,
$ cat nums.txt | julia -e 'import Stats; readlines(STDIN, chomp) |> lines->Int[int(x) for x in lines] |> hmean |> println'
ERROR: syntax: invalid syntax: ;

As a workaround, it is possible to embed a newline in the input. It's just not as convenient.
$ cat nums.txt | julia -e 'using Stats
readlines(STDIN, chomp) |> lines->Int[int(x) for x in lines] |> hmean |> println'
+1, I have been annoyed by this for a while
allow semicolon at end of import and using statements. fixes #4130
