I believe this question has been raised already.

I tried to search the archive using the Web interface, but the
<> URL seems broken, I got a directory
listing (with only the 2002-05 folder, containing only msg00159.html)
instead of the search form. 

Searching 'continue' in the old (January) archive I have on my hard disk,
I see the topic was first mentioned on 30 Oct 1997! Message-Id:
<> A lot of people stated they miss
continue (and break, which wasn't in the language at the time). 

Another request was in 15 Sep 2000 Message-ID:
<>, and I think it was asked recently too. 

Now, I can't remember the official answer :-)
