    There's some code floating around from DePaul University that claims to
    be an implementation of Loop.  I haven't seen this yet, so I don't know
    whether it's robust, clean, complete, and so on.  I also don't know for
    sure whether it is public-domain.  It apparently uses flavors, which
    makes it less portable than would otherwise be the case.

    I'll try to find out more about this.  I just wanted to mention it
    before anyone got rolling on a porting effort for Loop that might
    duplicate some of the work the DePaul people have done.

I'd like to see this if you get a copy.  On the other hand, the note that it
uses flavors makes me suspect that what you have is an implementation of LOOPS
rather than LOOP, which should go to the object-oriented programming group
rather than the iteration group!
