Have you actually looked at what Semi::Semicolons does? Do you really want that?
Perl is what it is. What you pay in sigils you more than make up in language flexibility, reliability and conciseness. For most coding tasks Perl ends up being more concise than most other popular general purpose languages so if it is saving keystrokes you are interested in, Perl generally comes out the winner in the long haul.
That said, saving keystrokes is almost never a productive use of time. Much better to learn the strengths of whatever language you are using and play to those strengths rather than try to bend a language to fit whatever your prior experience might be. A strength of Perl is that it can accommodate most programming styles and provides very powerful data management with easy to understand fundamental data types.
Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond
