same here.

of course the 'correct' lexical scoping in Lua (as different from
'almost' lexical like Python or JS) makes defining extra code blocks
not as ugly as it's on other languages.  so, wrapping the 'skipped
over' block in a proper block is ok in Lua, ugly in C / Python.

IOW, i'd like to have continue, but not at the expense of special cases.
