I find the amount of time my brain needs to lex and parse this to be  
an argument *for* the rule I suggested (which disallows the #;#;  

Do you really think the #;#; pattern is that useful, compared to the  
alternative below (which is compatible with the rule I suggested):

(define (foo x)
     (printf "foo\n")
     (printf "  x = ~s\n" x))
