MS, kill Begin/End!

It's funny - sorta - how you become used to the quirks of the tools you. I try not to rant too often here on the blog, but seriously, it's time for TSQL to lose the BEGIN/END syntax. It's clunky syntax that I think adds more bugs than it prevents. Think changing it would break too much code? Just leave the current behavior as the default and build in a SET option, perhaps SET BEGINEND OFF, that we can just add at the beginning of a procedure.

Maybe if we can get that one fixed we can also get ELSEIF?
