In case it matters, let me just go on the record as disliking this
added loop syntax. Special-casing certain while loops would be better,
in my opinion. And preserving some syntactic equivalence is, in my
opinion, more important than certain semantic equivalences. As far as
I can tell, the two languages aren't really semantically equivalent
anyway, are they?
