I agree, in fact I think that solving that issue is very important 
before/if ever introducing a generalized block statement because otherwise
things that would naturally be expressible with for and generators will 
use the block construct which allow more variety and
so possibly less immediate clarity just because generators are not good 
at resource handling.
