If you start a different language, yes, the block system would be number one. Do away
with oneline vs multiline blocks ambiguity in general. (and not just because
of ELSE). 

Second would be a different procedure-block ending from just "end;" though the M2 way
of end "procedurename" is unnecessary hard to maintain. end proc; or end
function would be just fine. 

As usual that doesn't mean I want to micromanage. I don't have to end every
block in  a specific way. As usual, bounding the major problem (don't let an unterminated block
spill over function bounderies)  is enough.

If you want to merely extend pascal, my fav feature would be qualified vs
unqualified import/export control I guesst.
