What are you on about?

I have never had the need to use the do...while construct in all the 
years I have been using Python. Everything in the language is designed 
so that they fit with the while and the for loops.

The language clicks with the features it has. Not a flaw at all!

I have used several other languages where there is a lot of different 
loop constructs. This does not make them any better. All you do is end 
up with 1-off errors all the time. Which you very rarely have in Python.
