This is something I also miss. I've seen way too many instances of
code simply copied and only 2 functions were substantially changed out
of 16. Of course, this can be refactored, but it just doesn't feel
elegant.

But it's nothing compared to the headache caused by the four different
ways to end a "statement": comma, full stop, semicolon or nothing.
