Ah, I undesrstood wrong there, it seems we are in agreement.

Semicolons in English are similar to semicolons in computer languages:
when I read ($a; $b), $a needs to stand on its own. If $b is really
important I would do ($a, but $b). But this is like splitting hairs of
splitted hairs.

I've seen too much discussion and too few patches, I'll send the mockup
I did a few days ago to see if it sticks.

Cheers.
