comment Pythonic Java. Yes, or no?
Note that Scala strikes a middle ground. It still requires braces, but in most cases, it can infer where the semicolon belongs (so you generally don't have to supply it), and it will infer variable and return types (so you don't have to supply them manually), leading to a terser syntax, while retaining compile-time type safety. In addition, it has support for functional constructs. There are those who would argue, if you're proposing making these kinds of changes to Java, maybe Scala would be worth trying.
