Just to clarify, PEP 315 had to do with a do-while concept (to make common use of pre-while code that
often exists) and not  the (dubious) issue of:

for X in listY while conditionZ:


for X in listY and conditionZ:



There seemed to be some confusion, but maybe they are related, but I'm not sure how....

Please reject the PEP. More variations along these lines won't make the language more elegant or easier to learn. They'd just save a few hasty folks some typing while making others who have to read/maintain their code wonder what it means.

Done. PEP 315 has been rejected.
