In the best case, these commas are just uninitentional mess, like typing
an extra space character or something. I've looked at them before and
one case I see where they are introduced is when people convert a
struct initializer to code.

- struct foo {
- .a = 1,
- .b = 2,
...
+ foo.a = 1,
+ foo.b = 2,

The times where commas are used deliberately to replace curly braces are
just evil. Either way the code is cleaner with semi-colons.
