Would it be rude and out of place for me to suggest some sort
of census out there on loop? I'd like to know:
(a) How many people are sufficiently interested in this topic
to reply with a one digit answer?
(b) How do they rate the existing loop facility? How about a
scale of 0 to 4:
4 Keep it just the way it is
3 Permit/make a few minor changes
2 Make the syntax more clispy (maybe parentheses or key words)
but keep the basic idea
1 Try something really different, e.g. LetS
0 Don't let anything like it pollute the language; use remove-if-not, etc.
Undoubtedly my listing of the issues reflects a big bias for
4. But I promise to tabulate and the report votes fairly,
like we always do down here in Texas.
