Tricky, though; blocks get in the way. So you couldn't reasonably do this:
for i in l:
or for try/except/finally blocks. Not that this is relavent to, well,
... so the notion that it is meaningful to pass pointers to memory
objects into which any random function may write random values
without having a clue where they point, has _not_ been debunked as
the sheer idiocy it really is. -- Erik Naggum, comp.lang.lisp
