In this case the elements of the list are trivial, so personally I'd
use commas, but semicolons are also legal.  Semicolons are "heavier"
and can seem more formal; they're also safer in cases where one of
the options itself involves punctuation - see for instance:
Ankh kak! (Ancient Egyptian blessing)
