Yeah, I would get lost pretty quick!  Named labels would help

while C1 do
   while C2 do
       if C3 then continue C1_loop end
end :C1_loop

The labels are also useful at the end of a big set of nested loops -
careful people often comment loop ends, anyway.

This is not a serving suggestion (as they say on packages) just an
indication of how the idea would work - actual syntax is always up for
