err, correction: don't -> don't think; naming variables -> naming
labels.  In other words, this would be consistent with the proposed

 for kk, vv in pairs(tt) do
   for k, v in pairs(t) do
     if condition1 then break end    -- same as `break :k:`
     if condition2 then break :continue: end
     if condition3 then break :redo: end
     if condition4 then break :kk: end
