Me too, but then that's because it's so much more maintainable to be 
able to repeat such for loops ad nauseum using the same loop var name 
without removing the 'int' type declarator. And happily that's not an 
issue in Python.

(Hmmm, jumping out of lurk mode with a comment concerning C++. Apologies 
for the bad form but I am somewhat of a Python newbie, albeit an 
increasingly addicted one).
