in reply to do/redo or for(;;): what's Kosher?

rje,

I've always been partial to:

while( 1 ) { # do stuff last if BREAK-CONDITION }

sure you have to re-evaluate the conditional but that's a price I'm willing to pay for better readability. redo inside one block seems silly and if I used it deep in nested blocks (with a label) I'd feel dirty.
