I prefer
for f in *.jpg ; mv $f $f:r.jpeg

For me, there is a simple reason to prefer
   if cmd ; then foo ; else bar ; fi
   if ( cmd ) { foo } else { bar }

On German keyboard layout, "{" and "}" are notoriously bad to
type (using Alt-gr (=right alt) and 7/0 from the upper keyboard
row) [which is one of the reasons why I mapped "if" to become
   if (_) {
(cursor on "_") in vim for perl hacking...].
Using ";" and "normal" words is not so strange to type...
