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

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 (;;) { ... }.
