Using dot instead of a semicolon as a statement end (say ‘hello’.) #6268
This bug report was motivated by this task from thinkperl6 book:
â�¢ What if you put a period at the end of a statement?
Arguably, it can probably figure out that . was used instead of ;. The problem is that . is interpreted as an infix, and therefore it only blows up when it sees the next occurrence of two terms in a row (or any other issue)â�¦ Not sure if there is any easy way to implement something like this (but a line ending with a dot should be a good heuristic, no?)

IMO that feels like a solution in search of a problem that assumes too much about what the user actually intended.
