I'm quite happy to be stuck with just while loops (rarely using
'do ...' loops in languages which support them anyway) but the
standard 'while 1: ... break' idiom is not aestheticly pleasing.

I use 'I' which has the added bonus of making references to
the self object stand out when you haven't hacked your Python
mode to highlight 'self'.
