I don't think the idea of setting the delimiter to ; permanently makes
much sense. You can do it whenever you want within your own do and 
ado files, but that is irrelevant to interactive sessions. If you 
_could_ do this, it would at a stroke render .do and .ado 
files written otherwise illegal, and you really shouldn't want 
that to happen. 

Otherwise put, a way to do this would be to clone Stata 
yourself and change the syntax to make the ; obligatory. 

You could put -set more off- in a profile.do. I wouldn't 
recommend it.
