Feature #10528

Allow line breaks instead of commas in arrays, hashes, argument lists, etc.

Description

Since the seemingly reasonable proposal #8956 has been rejected because it "diverged so far from the original", i will dare to propose another version here.

I suggest to automatically convert line breaks inside parentheses (...), inside "hashy" braces {...}, inside brackets [...], and inside block argument lists |...|, if they are not preceded with a comma and skipping empty space, into a comma, while all other line breaks that are not preceded with a semicolon into a semicolon (skipping empty lines). Unless, of course, the line break is preceded with \ or followed by a dot ..

I would be possible to write then:

todo = [ 'shopping'
         'cinema'
         'restaurant' ]

rules = { 'evil' => 'bad'
          'kind' => 'good' }

I forgot to mention other usual cases when lines should be implicitly continued: after a dot, after an operator symbol, etc.
