in thread How can i prevent perltidy from adding a semicolon after an ellipsis?

From the docs You can only use the elliptical statement to stand in for a complete statement.

So the semicolon is needed, if the "yadda yadda" is followed by other statements.

And a trailing semicolon in a functions body is certainly not bad style.
