It would simplify the api and consumption there of if all parameters that accept multiple items used a common delimiter.

We have semicolon and space that I know of so far.

Eliminating space as a delimiter is not necessary, but adding semicolon as a valid delimiter would serve to provide a consistent api and should not break existing code as semicolon is not typically a search component.

Also, regardless of whether there is a change, declaration of the delimiter on 'list of' params would be helpful.

I would certainly like to see the semicolon be the only delimiter. – Nathan Osman Jun 14 '10 at 21:39

Anything that's not semi-colon delimited should be considered a bug.
