There is a type in the documentation, the last clause in a receive or in a case must not have any semicolons after them.

BTW, is there a compelling reason why that is so? Why not let all clauses end with semicolon? It's much easier to reorder them by simply copy-and-paste :-)

I think I already can guess the answer - the parser would need larger lookahead to understand what's going on... Is it so?
