I personally don't like that idiom, because it's not obvious to me that it's an infinite loop. For that, I would prefer while (1) or something along those lines. (Actually, I've never had to program an eternal loop before. *shrugs*)

Of course, I've also never used redo, so the idiom isn't very familiar to me.
