According to the HTML 4.01 implementation notes -- 

http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/appendix/notes.html#h-B.2.2 

-- 

``We recommend that HTTP server implementors, and in particular, CGI implementors support the use of ";" in place of "&" to save authors the trouble of escaping "&" characters in this manner.'' 

Thus http://script.php?f=3;g=2 could be equivalent to
http://script.php?f=3&g=2

This feature has been available for years.  Just set the arg_separator directive to ";" in your php.ini file.
