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

I know it's more code, but my favorite method for obvious loops looks like this:

$forever = 1; while ($forever) { ... }

    That won't be optimized away, but a constant true value (not 0, "0", "" or undef) are.
    This means you can have less code and more efficiency, but still the clarity you like:
    while ('forever'){ ... }


    Which is equivalent to while (1) { ... }, which is optimized to for (;;) { ... }.
